On Wednesdays, Cameron’s Trio — featuring skillful trumpeter Cameron Harder Handel, drummer Stuart White, and keyboardist Sam Sfirri —perform acoustic jazz and grooves from 6-10 p.m.

On Sundays, local ivory tickler Jordan Gravel plays contemporary jazz piano favorites and original material from 6-9 p.m.

The regular schedule still has the Leah Suárez Trio on Monday evenings, the Frank Duvall Trio on Tuesday evenings, Ann Caldwell & LooseFitt on Thursdays and Fridays, and Lewis-Gregory-Jenkins Trio on Saturday evenings.
