Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Sven Larson on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.
