Showcase Concerts “ass-wiggling funk/jazz…
“3 Brave Souls create a groove so deep you could fall right in.” – Urban Flux

Three Miles Davis alumni and funk-feel-freaks, keyboardist John Beasley,
groovemeister and Rolling Stones’ bassist Darryl Jones,
master drummer Ndugu Chancler joined forces to form 3 Brave Souls and baptize classic jazz flavorings with
contagious and penetrating funk grooves with honey dew sounds of southern soul.
The Seattle showcase will feature Ronald Bruner Jr, just out of the studio with Prince, on drums and cosmic vocal improviser Dwight Trible.

“Eclectic brand of funk…danceable music…songs with hypnotic grooves, a soulful stew or a silky ballad. There’s seldom a dull moment here.” - Jazz Times

    was not free to answer until now:
    As owner/organizer I stay on top of my counts and always have the option to at any time increase seating, as I am in frequent contact with Jazz Alley. Seating always depends on response received as I start out with table of 8. Often members cancel out and wait list is not more. I have NEVER hosted an event where a member who wants to attend is left out. Thank you for your patience.
    Any one that wants to join this event would be welcome. I have often gone up to 15 count so there is never a restrictive count. .

      Yes, John. I was one of the bartenders upstairs at Le Cafe'. Do you remember back when Sheryl Crow was one of the waitresses? Well, that's back when I was there and often I'd get the chance to come out from the bar and have a seat. I hope to see you in Seattle soon. I moved up here this past June and am finding many kindred spirits in Jazz.
