This event has already passed
East Village Coffee Lounge presents an evening of jazz music featuring the Leon Joyce Organ Trio on Sunday, January 26, 5pm-7:30pm. Don't miss this classic organ trio that has serious swing. $10 at the door.
The Leon Joyce Organ Trio consists of three master chefs - Brian Ho on organ, Ken Okada on bass, and Leon Joyce, Jr. on drums - who will provide you with a musical meal prepared specially for your soul from traditional, contemporary, and Latin jazz.
Drummer Leon Joyce Jr. has worked with a wide variety of top artists including Ramsey Lewis, Nancy Wilson, Smokey Robinson, James Carter, Clark Terry, Larry Coryell, Patti LaBelle, and Mary Wilson, plus his own ensembles.
Richard Scheinin of the Mercury News describes Joyce as "an antidote to power drummers and the hybrid-genre bands with their brainy arrangements. His playing is crisp and detailed. He plays a style of jazz that was once played in neighborhood bars in every major city. It’s a style that’s going away; the feel of it can’t be taught in a conservatory."
