JAZZ | Herb Smith Freedom Trio


EDITOR'S NOTE: This concert has been postponed until Friday, March 9. Same time, location, and price.

The words "Freedom Trio" can mean many things, but in the case of the Herb Smith Freedom Trio, one sure thing is freedom from the predictable. When Smith, a superb trumpeter, records his upcoming album live at The Penthouse, he's sure to also play the didgeridoo and add some electronic loops. If that's not far enough into the realm of the unusual, watch bassist Peter Chwazik's finger's traverse his 9-string electric bass. Chwazik also plays guitar, and Joe Parker rounds out the trio on drums and percussion. Most unpredictable of all will be the improvisation and interplay spurred by the excitement of a live recording.

The Herb Smith Freedom Trio plays Friday, March 2, at the Penthouse at One East Avenue. Doors at 7 p.m. $30 general; $25 in advance. Search "Herb Smith" on;
