Come to Alphabet City for an evening of free jazz with the Joel Pace Organ Trio. The Joel Pace Organ Trio plays jazz in the style popularized by the great organ groups of the 1950’s and 60’s, using the format of Hammond Organ, Guitar and Drums to craft a powerful sound that could run the gamut from R & B influenced cookers to swinging jazz standards and lush ballads. Joel Pace, on organ, adds vocals to the mix for an audience-friendly evening of jazz with a touch of Rhythm & Blues. Mr. Pace is joined by Jim Powell on drums and Dan Pierson on guitar.
