Sunday Jazz Showcase

The Sunday jazz Showcase at Isis Music Hall continues this weekend (Sept. 1) two trios performing in the upstairs lounge and on the downstairs main stage. $5 / $3 students.

Asheville Art Trio (William Bares on piano, Mike Holstein on bass, Justin Watt on drums) with special guest Patrick Lopez on trumpet plays the main stage. 8-11 p.m. “When not playing with the Hard Bop Explosion or teaching at UNC Asheville, Dr. William Bares is usually at work on one of three trio projects,” says a press release. “Two of his trios—Billy the Kid and the Outlaws and Three Chord Monte—have already played the Isis. This Sunday marks the debut of his third project, Asheville Art Trio, featuring the Asheville Original Music Series’s dynamic duo of Mike Holstein and Justin Watt. Miami trumpet sensation Patrick Lopez joins the trio for a special evening of interactive, intimate renditions of jazz standards, originals and pop tunes.”

The Anne Coombs Trio (Coombs on guitar and vocals, Frank Southecorvo on sax and Byron Hedgepeth on drums) plays the upstairs lounge from 6-8 p.m. From a press release: “A very special ISIS gig! Experience the beauty, the joy and the just out and out ‘cool’ of musician and educator Anne Coombs, who will serenade you with a selection of personal arrangements of jazz and swing standards. Perfect music for a lazy, early summer evening!”
