October 4, 2017

John Spicknall's Jazz Piano Trio adds saxophonist Sam Fagaly to the band to perform "Jazz Standards Revisited" at 2 p.m. Oct. 8 on the Indiana State University campus.

The trio consists of pianist John Spicknall, bassist Joe Deal and drummer John DiCenso. These musicians began working on arrangements of "Great American Song Book" repertory and jazz standards more than ten years ago that continues to grow and develop. The band has often appeared backing up guest musicians at Indiana State including performances with Bobby Shew, Jim Ketch and Jim Perry.

The program will include both familiar standards as "Autumn in New York," "Like Someone in Love, My Old Flame" and jazz compositions "Lament," "Lady Luck" and Sam Jones' "Bittersweet."

The program will be held in the recently renamed Boyce Recital Hall of the Richard Landini Center for Fine and Performing Arts and is free and open to the public.
