Friday, October 5 — Soiree: The Lewis Nash Classic Trio 

$100 (center section)/$80 (sides)

Lewis Nash’s trio reputation may be best expressed by his decade-long membership in the Tommy Flanagan Trio. The legendary Flanagan was known to have preferred ‘the intuitive, always-ready Nash to any other drummer.’ Along with Flanagan on piano and Peter Washington on bass, the trio created some of the most memorable jazz recordings of the 1990s. This intimate soiree performance by the Lewis Nash Classic Trio with Peter Washington on bass and a world-renowned surprise guest on piano takes place in an elegant high-rise condo overlooking the Phoenix Japanese Friendship Garden. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres will help to make this a memorable experience. Limited to around 70 guests.
