Paul Samuels 4, Tri-C Jazz Trio + Kick Off JazzFest

Good start to Tri-C JazzFest last night at Brothers Lounge. The Tri-C Jazz Trio + (Joe Hunter, Ray Porello, Demetrius Steinmetz, Chris Burge & Bob Fraser) turned in a nice, playful set that included takes on The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood,” “The Rainbow Connection,” of Muppets fame, and Jaco Pastorius'”Three Views of a Secret.”

The Paul Samuels 4 (Samuels, Glenn Holmes, Dan Wilson & Alex Cummings) followed, featuring tunes by Monk, Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. Guitarist Wilson may well have been the star of the night, boasting quick yet surrealistically clean lines.

 Nice, diverse crowd filled the music room.
