JAZZ | Michael Musillami Trio

by

comment

Guitarist Michael Musillami came on the scene in the early 1980's in organ trios led by Richard "Groove" Holmes and others. He expanded his reputation as a sideman with jazz greats like Curtis Fuller, Dewey Redman, and Junior Cook. Now with his own trio, Musillami steps out front with commanding solos reaching from hard bop to avant-garde and covering a lot of the territory in between. No small part of his innovative sound stems from his excellent choice of band-mates: drummer George Schuller and bassist Joe Fonda.

The Michael Musillami Trio performs Wednesday, March 13, 9 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. $10-$12. 292-9940, lovincup.com.
