Jazz St Louis
3536 Washington Ave, St. Louis, MO
Pianist Reggie Thomas with guitarist Rick Haydon and bassist Bob DeBoo, pay tribute to one of America’s favorite pianists and vocalists and his unique King Cole Trio. Join us in celebrating the legacy of a man who influenced generations of musicians and broke down racial barriers as the first black man to host an American television series. This evening will explore the music of the King Cole Trio, originally King Cole and His Swingsters, which featured guitarist Oscar Moore (later replaced by Irving Ashby) and bassist Wesley Prince (later replaced by Johnny Miller). This trio specialized in swing music with a delicate touch in that they did not employ a drummer.
