Steve Russell (pictured), a local jazz pianist of national renown, has had a long connection with jazz trios. His muso mum had a jazz trio. One day she rang him up because the bass player was sick. She told young Russell to grab the bass and get to the gig. The young pianist learned he could play bass as well!
The Steve Russell Trio, with Thierry Fossmalle on bass and Dave Sanders on the kit, will play at the Jazz N Blues gig at the Rous Hotel in Lismore next Tuesday night, March 6, from 8.30pm.
