Session One: Gravel
Gravel is a jazz group from Burlington featuring Jerome Monachino (guitar), Mark Plasse (bass), Matt Deluca (drums) and Tom Morse (trumpet).
Whether performing original compositions or providing their take on familiar standards, the music is characteristically dialogical and dynamic.
Gravel made its hometown debut in early 2007 by warming the stage for legendary guitarist Melvin Sparks at the Burlington landmark, Nectar’s. Since then, they've earned an enthusiastic following throughout northern and central Vermont by delivering first-class improvisation rooted in jazz and groove.
Session Two: The Groovy Trio
The Groovy Trio consists of guitarist/leader George Petit, electric bassist Patrick Markley and drummer Lucas Adler.
Not wanting to be limited to one genre of music, the trio plays selections that range from Miles to Hendrix, from Jazz to Blues to Soul to Country, all with a very unique sound.
Drawing on the experiences of decades of international touring, hundreds of recording projects and Master Classes in Music, the members dig deeply into their music and present it with a fresh approach to an old concept.
