LACONIA — The Ken Clark Organ Trio with special guest Myanna on saxophone will perform at Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia on Friday, August 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets will are $15 per person and can be purchased at the door.
Ken Clark is internationally known as one of the world's greatest jazz organists; however, there is much more to his music than jazz organist, as he also plays R&B, Funk, and blues. The Boston resident isn't the type of organist who is content to emulate Jimmy Smith's seminal '50s and '60s recordings, but is also influenced by Larry Young, John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame), and Charles Earland. In 1992, he formed the Ken Clark Organ Trio, employing his friend from Berklee Mike Mele on guitar, and has since traveled performing to various crowds around the country.
Joining Ken and his Trio will be one of the hottest and most soulful saxophonists to be based in Massachusetts. Myanna plays music that mixes together jazz improvisation with funky rhythms, expressive playing and catchy tunes. Her music, whether it is an original or a cover tune, is colorful and infectious, and she is a consistent crowd pleaser.
A catered dinner buffet available before the show. For more information or to make reservations, call 527-0043 or 494-3334, or visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com.
