Monks 10/7 Kevin Lovejoy Trio

Kevin’s trio was a delight. For this show, all the selections feature piano. The pre and post shows are mostly all piano trio records. For the intermission, I chose only solo and duet records. Yes, i put two versions of the same Joe Albany song on there. It’s interesting to hear how his approach changes from solo to bass duet. An mp3 of the set can be downloaded here.
