Matt Slocum Trio

Daily from June 9-10
7:30 p.m.

St. Paul-born drummer Matt Slocum’s melodic sophistication has earned him a burgeoning rep on the New York jazz scene as a musician and composer. His new album, Sanctuary, features two other stellar talents, pianist Gerald Clayton and bassist Larry Grenadier, who together create music of sublime depth and texture, both spacious and subtly complex, swinging on “Days of Peace” while establishing a sense of shimmery warmth on the title cut. Two other originals are sly, enchanting evocations of “Aspen Island” and “Star Prairie,” both near Slocum’s Western Wisconsin childhood home. Also Monday.
