Join us for an evening of solo jazz piano presented by Sam Fribush. Born and raised in Greensboro, NC - Fribush is a graduate from the New England Conservatory of Music. After college he moved to New Orleans, LA where he gigged nightly, learning the tradition and sounds of the mighty mississippi. Fribush has two blazing new albums from the Sam Fribush Organ Trio — Vol. I: Riverboat and Vol II: The Root - produced by virtuoso guitarist Charlie Hunter, both records find Fribush, Hunter and drummer Geoff Clapp putting their special soulful spin on everything from jazz standards (Yusef Lateef’s “Plum Blossom,” Billy Strayhorn), New Orleans touchstones (Allen Toussaint’s “Riverboat), 70s R&B jams (Billy Preston’s “Will It Go Round in Circles) and modern classics like D’Angelo’s “The Root” and Bonnie Raitt’s “Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About,” as well as a couple of Fribush originals. If you dig the likes of Jimmy McGriff, Big John Patton and Brother Jack McDuff, the Sam Fribush Organ Trio is most definitely in your wheelhouse.
