Free: Ken Husbands Trio
January 24, 2014
“Pat Metheny meets the Meters"
Yoshi's Local Talent Series: FREE Live music in The Lounge 6:30-10:00pm!
The Ken Husbands Trio is the explosive combination of three very active players on the Bay Area jazz scene: Ken Husbands on guitar, Aaron Germain on electric and acoustic bass and Otto Huber on drums. They bring their jazz chops to a collection of genre-defying compositions that have been documented on two CDs to date. Their live shows combine original music with interpretations of standards for a refreshing program of tight grooves, kaleidoscopic harmonies and inspired improvisational energy. Recently described by an enthusiastic fan as “Pat Metheny meets the Meters,” the trio has established a unique sound and approach that is rooted in jazz but draws upon influences from around the world.
