Tuesday, November 8, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Come enjoy the unique jazz style of the Andy Weyl Jazz Trio as you reconnect with old friends and meet new colleagues in the elegant Lake Terrace Room of the Broadmoor Hotel. This pianist's truly unique style developed overseas, as he was born in Denmark, and spent his youth traveling across Europe. Over the years, Weyl has played and recorded with the region's best jazz musicians, and performs at clubs and festivals across the nation and Europe, frequently backing up visiting artists of note, such as James Moody, Tom Harrell, Benny Golson, Spike Robinson, Eddie Harris, Al Grey, and Bruce Foreman. Weyl is accompanied by Rob Dando on bass and Kevin Smith on drums.
