This fall, St. Luke's Episcopal Church in East Hampton will be entertaining East End audiences with their new series of Zoom jazz concerts. The Simón Willson trio, which will feature Simón Willson on bass, Kevin Sun on tenor saxophone, and Aaron Seeber on drums, will headline the premiere on Saturday, November 21.

"St. Luke's Church has established a series of monthly jazz concerts that will be available on Zoom so that people who are unable to attend concerts in person can enjoy lively jazz music during the pandemic," Jeffrey Sussman noted.

The inaugural event will encompass Willson's extraordinary compositions and the improvisation of several jazz standards.

Willson, a NYC based bassist, composer, and improviser, has toured with a number of musicians throughout Europe, the US, Canada, and South America. He co-leads the bands Great on Paper, Family Plan, and Earprint - which won the "best debut album" category of the NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll in 2016.

Sun, a saxophonist, improvisor, composer, and writer, is the leader of Trio and The Sustain of Memory, which has released two albums. He is also co-led of the ensemble Earprint and Mute. Sun has been lauded by The New York Times, Village Voice, Downbeat, The New York City Jazz Record, Audiophile Audition, PopMatters and Stereogum.

Seeber, a NYC based drummer, has shared the stage with several jazz icons - such as Eric Reed, Jon Faddis, Cyrile Aimee, Jeremy Pelt, Paul Bollenback, Tim Green, and Bruce Harris. He regularly showcases his talents at the renowned Small Jazz Club.

The Simón Willson will take the St. Luke's Church stage at 4:00 p.m.

"The Simon Willson Trio is in the forefront of jazz, improvising on jazz standards, such as those composed by Thelonious Monk, as well as its own compositions," Sussman added.
