Every week, Shannon Gunn leads the post-bop Firebird Organ Trio, featuring a rotating cast of organists/keyboardists and drummers. The group plays two sets; recently, their first sets have been dedicated to 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.
