October’s edition of Caffe Lena’s monthly jazz series led by pianist Chuck Lamb featured the legendary jazz vibraphonist Joe Locke as the special guest. Together with accomplished bassist Ira Coleman, the drummer-less trio entertained the audience with two sets of originals and standards.

They were clearly playing as much for each other as they were for the audience. As Lamb remarked, “Without a drummer, we can hear each other clearly and interact more easily.”

In between numbers, Locke entertained the audience with his background stories about the songs and experiences playing them.

Next up on Caffe Lena’s monthly jazz night, the Chuck Lamb Trio is joined by veteran trumpeter Valery Ponomarev in concert at 7pm tonight (Tuesday, November 13). Tickets are $22.
