St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Hampton, as part of its outreach and community enrichment program, has inaugurated a series of jazz concerts. The first concert for the fall, on Saturday, November 21, at 4 p.m. will be a virtual performance of The Simón Willson trio, which features Simón Willson on bass, Kevin Sun on tenor saxophone, and Aaron Seeber on drums. In addition to Willson’s stunning compositions, the trio will improvise on a number of jazz standards, including ones made memorable by Thelonious Monk. The performances of the trio explore the possibilities of the chord-less format, creating an open and expressive sound.

Simón Willson is a New York City-based bassist, composer and improviser. He has toured with a host of different musicians in Europe, the United States, Canada, and South America. He was recently featured on albums as a member of Dave Douglas’ sextet and on Elan Mehler’s “TJ & the Revenge” project alongside Grammy Award-winning guitar player Bill Frisell. In addition to his sideman work, he co-leads the bands Great on Paper, Family Plan, and Earprint. The latter won the “best debut album” category of the NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll in 2016.

Kevin Sun is a saxophonist, improvisor, composer, and writer. He has released two albums as a leader, “Trio” and “The Sustain of Memory” and is a member of the co-led ensemble Earprint and Mute.

Aaron Seeber, a New York City-based drummer, has performed with such virtuosos of jazz as Eric Reed, Jon Faddis, Cyrile Aimee, Jeremy Pelt, Paul Bollenback, Tim Green, and Bruce Harris, among various others. As a bandleader, he regularly performs at the renowned Small Jazz Club.

Tickets for the virtual concert are $10. For further information, visit stlukeseasthampton.org and click on the community events link.
