On Saturday, May 20th the Peter Hand Trio returns to Alvin & Friends with guitarist Peter Hand, Steve Johns on drums and special guest musician Daryl Johns on bass. Guitarist, composer and arranger Peter Hand has worked with many top artists and bands including Houston Person, Lee Konitz, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Chicago Jazz Orchestra, Charleston Jazz Orchestra and the Munich Modern Jazz Orchestra. His most recent album, Out Of Hand, a big band outing (Savant Records), received rave reviews and reached No. 4 on the JazzWeek Radio Chart of top 50 CDs nationwide. Steve Johns is one of the best drummers in jazz, much in-demand for his masterful playing; his son Daryl is considered one of the top young bassists on the scene today. (At the age of 13 Daryl was a semi-finalist in the 2009 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Bass Competition.) No cover charge, but tables are reserved for diners and there is a two-drink minimum at the bar.
