Late Night Concert Series w/The Trio Book
Chris Madsen's most latest release is the album “The Trio Book”! The record features two of the finest musicians in the world: bassist Clark Sommers and drummer Dana Hall, both of which will be regularly appearing during this run at Andy's. The seven songs chosen for this recent recording are by some of Madsen's favorite composers: Freddie Hubbard, Joe Chambers, Chris Cheek, Wes Montgomery, and others including an original work by the trio.
