Jimmie Divine Trio

DESCRIPTION: The Jimmie Divine Jazz Trio evokes the sound of the great jazz trios of the past. We prefer a straight-ahead take on the standards - cool swing and beautiful ballads. Pianist Takeshi Asai graduated from Berklee in 1997 with honors in piano performance and has performed at NYC's Lenox Lounge, The Garage, and The Knitting Factory. Bassist Lou Pappas received his MFA in doublebass from Colorado State and has shared the stage with Steve Turre, Michael Brecker and other greats. Drummer Jon Berger has performed with Aretha Franklin, Roy Merriwether, and Harvey S and on Broadway in Jersey Boys, The Color Purple and Cats. Vocalist Jim Martocci (Jimmie Divine)has performed at The Lenox Lounge, Cleopatra's Needle and other metropolitan NYC venues. The trio has been together since 2005.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
