Friday, April 28, 6pm at Copperfield’s Books, San Rafael | Free event!
A free concert by the guys who started playing a monthly gig back in 2011 at the now shuttered Actual Café in Oakland.
All acknowledged masters on their instruments, the Actual Trio have spent years playing together in the studio and on the road, forging a singular group voice in the crowded world of modern guitar-oriented Jazz. John Schott’s compositions put groove, free improvisation, humor, melody, and harmony into a blender, and bring out the stellar musicianship of bassist Dan Seamans and drummer John Hanes. “Together, we are committed to the joys of swinging, playing what you hear, being in the moment, and sharing with audiences,” says Schott. Paul de Barros of the Seattle Times has written,” If you like swinging jazz guitar with a zany, eccentric bent, see this threesome.”
