Alex & The Trio at Thom's on Thursday

This Thursday night, my buddy Alex Minasian returns to Professor Thom's to do a free gig of jazz standards and classics, from 8-11 PM in Thom's second floor Loft.

Alex will once again be joined by his friends Nameer Shukri on drums and Zaid Shukri on bass. They played at Thom's a short time ago and sounded great. They also welcome other musicians to come on by and sit in with the band.

Alex is a terrific piano player, with an expanding reputation. The picture here is of Alex, with jazz legends Hank Jones and Chick Corea, at Hank's 90th birthday gig at Birdland last Saturday night. (I'm sorry I missed it, as Alex told me Hank sounded great.)

There's no cover on Thursday night at Thom's, and Bud Lites will be just $3. I'll be on hand, and I hope many of you who enjoy quality jazz will also stop by to check out Alex and his Trio.
