This weekend at The Buttonwood Tree The TJ Thompson Trio will join us for an evening of jazz, Friday, February 8 at 8-10 pm. Seats may be reserved online here.
Winner of the IMEA Jazz Artist of the Year for their recent album Take Two: The Sound of Playing, this group plays a combination of originals along with the Soul, Blues, and Jazz of New Orleans, Memphis, and beyond. We cover everything from Jelly Roll Morton, Professor Longhair, Thelonious Monk, Booker T and the MG’s, Jimi Hendrix, The Dead, and more. Leader T.J. Thompson performed with Betty Carter’s Jazz Ahead at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, and as a result was a featured artist on Branford Marsalis’ Jazz Set show on NPR. In 1998 he recorded and produced Thompson Trio Take One, an album consisting mostly of original works, which received good reviews from Goldmine and Cadence magazines. A student of both Henry Butler and George Cables, he has opened for and worked with such artists as Henry Butler, Mel Torme, Ed Thigpen, Dave Liebman, and Koko Taylor as well as being a featured soloist on the Morgan Powell Jazz Album.
