After 18 years together and four CDs, drummer Rich Thompson, trumpeter Clay Jenkins, and bassist Jeff Campbell have the kind of simpatico musicians envy. Maybe it's because they also work together as professors at the Eastman School of Music. At Kilbourn Hall they'll be playing original tunes and standards and some lesser known tunes by well-known artists, like John Coltrane's "Just For The Love." The friends referred to are two of Rochester's best: guitarist Bob Sneider and Charles Pillow, saxophone and other woodwinds.
Trio East & Friends perform Wednesday, July 11, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $10 (free with UR ID). 274-1100; eastmantheatre.org.
