Peter Kogan Quartet: 6pm Peter Kogan began musical studies at age six on the violin, added piano at age eight and drums at age ten. In 1977 his passion for jazz blues and rock got the better of him, and he left the Pittsburgh Symphony to spend six years in New York City as a drum set player and composer. He backed up Blues legends Lightnin’ Hopkins, Honey-Boy Edwards, and Jimmy Whitherspoon, groups such as the Drifters and the Crystals, and Rock and Roll legend Bo Diddley. Kogan recently began performing jazz drums and composing again, and can be heard with Le Jazz Cool All Stars, which includes Minnesota Orchestra members Charles Lazarus and David Williamson. (site)

Joel Shapira Trio: 4pm “Coolness is defined by action, not words. Joel Shapira approaches guitar playing like a veteran baseball player on a hot streak would approach the plate, brimming with an obvious yet calm swagger. When he swings for the fences, there’s no obnoxious boasting, just an easy self-confidence that is bred from years of experience and a complete understanding of the game. On “Open Lines,” Shapira never hogs the spotlight, doesn’t let the musicians that fill his quartet take a passenger seat. Instead, he’s a team player that isn’t afraid to share a groove even when he’s smoking all over it.” -Robert Sutton “Jazz Times
