From a mambo-infused take on Nat King Cole’s Nature Boy to updated arrangements of The Beatles, Steely Dan and Sting, the music of Jim E Leggs Trio offers an upbeat, fun and varied mix of jazz, funk and classics that will lift your spirits. The music is the thing, with vocals on some tunes and on others their instruments tell the story. Jim E Leggs Trio’s jams on well-known tunes provide unexpected turns along the way.
