December 2, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
SHERYL BAILEY TRIO FROM NEW YORK CITY
A contemporary edition of the renowned B3 Hammond Organ Trio led by a glorious guitarist. This is a working, touring band together for over 15 years. That offers us their sweet spot. And the organist will be playing on a real, vintage Hammond B3 courtesy of the family of Jim Wilson with assistance from Annie Avery, Bob Hamilton and Ken Searcy. Not to be missed.

There’s no description more apt for Sheryl Bailey than “A sizzling guitar goddess” (All About Jazz). … “the ultimate organ trio” (Jazz Inside Magazine.) In addition to their 15-year plus residency at NYC’s 55 Bar, they have toured China, Canada, Europe and the US. This is a working band!
Adam Levy of Guitar Player Magazine calls Sheryl “One of the most compelling tones of her generation”, and Frank Forte of Just Jazz Guitar ranks her “among the best bop guitar players with a fresh approach and something new.”
It’s said (by Lee Metcalf, The Villager) that she can “go from zero to blazing in two beats”, but she is continually praised for never sacrificing melody and lyricism for technique. “She balances superior technical skills with a strong lyrical sense and swinging touch…” continues Metcalf, and Joe Taylor of Soundstage says “Bailey combines an astonishing command of the fingerboard with a seemingly endless flow of melodic invention.”
