This is a live capture from the audience at the 2017 end of the year “Random Trios” show for the Nebraska Mondays series at Luna’s Cafe in Sacramento, CA. this happening is hosted by Ross Hammond.

How it works is that musicians are invited…everyone comes with gear.. their names are put into a hat (yes, an actual hat) and 3 names are drawn out at a time and those people play an impromptu improvisational set on the spot for 10-15 mins…this year there were 28 players.. 9 trios and one quartet at the end (a mini Instagon set) all for the support of one of the longest running jazz series in the Sacramento area.

These recordings are posted here for FREE DOWNLOADS.. so that EVERYONE involved can get to them and download for free… I hope you enjoy them.. thanks for a great night.
