The Bill Barnes Jazz Trio

Rockland — The Bill Barnes Jazz Trio will perform Saturday, Feb. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. as part of the Velvet Lounge series at Rock City Café, 316 Main St.

A veteran New York session guitarist, Bill Barnes started his musical career in the late 1960s, touring with ATCO Records recording artist Arthur Conley (“Sweet Soul Music”). He has since played with a stellar lineup of music industry heavies.

Barnes’ most recent album is “Winds of Bodhgaya.” Trio, duo or solo, Barnes’ repertoire includes gypsy jazz, classic jazz standards, sultry bossa novas, tasty ballads and cool, laid-back blues.

As usual there is no cover; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged. For more information on this and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123.
