JOSHUA ESPINOZA TRIO

Friday, March 17, 2023, 8 pm 

Live! @Montpelier

The Baltimore-based Joshua Espinoza Trio explores shimmering harmonies and shifting orchestral contours with the aesthetic of a chamber ensemble as much as a jazz trio. Through their genre-bending approach to songwriting, they’ve built a cross-generational audience of diverse backgrounds bound together by their love of good music. Joshua Espinoza Trio is composed of Joshua Espinoza, Kris Monson (bass), and Jaron Lamar Davis (drums). This performance will include selections from their 2019 released album “Journey Into Night”, along with newly composed pieces and arrangements of classics by the likes of Billy Joel, the Beatles, and Burt Bacharach.
