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, R & B and Pop 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.
