The Tom Rainey Trio

$15 Cover / Start 8pm / Doors 7:30pm

This Special Trio, Together—as well as individually—make a refreshing new and not so sentimental kind evocative of beautiful music: momentum, nuances and dynamic ranges.  Adventurous, Intimate, Cohesive. An abstract truth…

Tom Rainey is a player who swerves between avant-garde notions and a mainstream sensibility and when he plays the smell of invention is in the air”.

Halvorson, One of the most exciting and original guitarists in jazz—or otherwise” 

“…confirms Laubrock as a weighty new presence in Creative Jazz”.

Tom Rainey, Drums

Mary Halvorson, Guitar

Ingrid Laubrock, Saxophones


The Creative Music Series (CMS) was established in January, 2015, to showcase the work of adventurous jazz musicians from Out-of-State, presenting them in intimate venues in the Cambridge/Somerville area.  My endeavor was a reaction to the apparent lack of invitations being extended to accomplished and even unknown musicians to Boston.  CMS has now also begun to zero in on Boston based musicians who are creating their own projects with these out-of-town guests and taking these musical risks to find an expression and gain a wider appreciation.
