* Shannon Gunn & the Firebird Organ Trio

February 18, 2020 @ 8:00 pm
Club Heaven & Hell
2327 18th St NW
DC 20009

Trombonist Shannon Gunn is an imaginative musician and frequent bandleader at venues across D.C. She could be found on Tuesdays at Columbia Station and now at Club Heaven & Hell, reworking bop classics in an organ-trio format and at other times leading her own big band through simmering soul jazz; she’s even been known to arrange Rage Against the Machine for improvising ensembles.

At these Tuesday sessions, Gunn uses the first set of the night for tinkering on her latest arrangements, sometimes re-imagining monumental albums in the jazz world by figures like Horace Silver, Art Blakey and Cedar Walton. The second set opens up for a jam, with local musicians often bringing their instruments and original compositions to the mix.
