An Evening of Bebop with the Dave Stone Group with special Guest Eric Slaughter
Dave Stone has been a stalwart of the Saint Louis improvisational music scene for over 25 years. Primarily a tenor saxophonist, Dave has also played guitar and other reed instruments with many local bands, and in multiple musical genres. Revered in both the STL jazz and the free improv circles, Dave has been an under-appreciated Saint Louis icon since the early 1990's.
The Dave Stone Trio has had a long-standing Friday night residency at Mangia Italiano since 1997, surviving through 4 different owners. Their gig begins every Friday at 11:30pm, so this concert is a rare chance to hear his trio at an earlier time. This will be the first bebop / post-bop show in the Focal Point's 43-year history, so you won't want to miss a night of music inspired by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, and Sonny Rollins.
Special guest Eric Slaughter is a high-energy guitarist, experienced nationally and internationally in jazz/rock/funk/pop and more. This will be a homecoming of sorts, Eric played with the Dave Stone Trio regularly in the late 1990's.
