Joe Manis Trio, Jim Templeton

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm., Saturday September 28 | $10.
Ivories Jazz Lounge and Restaurant
1435 NW Flanders St.
 
[JAZZ] The name is familiar, but the context is fresh. After a decade exploring the classic, Sonny Rollins-style sax-bass-drums ensemble—and other trio configurations including piano, guitar and even electric bass—Joe Manis has ventured into another classic jazz assemblage: the organ trio, featuring recent NYC-to-PSU transplant George Colligan at the keyboard. Todd Strait mans the drum kit for this show. The Eugene sax master has also left his gig in the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and landed a record deal with the venerable SteepleChase jazz label. As his excellent new album, North by Northwest, demonstrates, what hasn’t changed is Manis’ commanding sound and astute improvisations, nor his inventive way with the classics—this time including songbook standards, tunes by jazz legends Monk, Coltrane and Lenny Tristano and a handful of appealing original compositions.
