The Actual Trio celebrate the release of their second CD, "Act II". Ranging from joyful tributes to Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz and the Golden State Warriors to an anguished response to the 2016 election, the disc solidifies and deepens the Bay Area trio’s singular identity. Bassist Dan Seamans (New Klezmer Trio, Lost Trio), and drummer John Hanes (Henry Kaiser, Victor Krummenacher) provide the foundation for Schott’s adventurous-but-accessible compositions, marrying deep pockets and joyful swing to wayward harmonies and spontaneous excursions. For this special concert the trio will be expanded to include a horn section and a second guitarist, featuring Jayn Pettingal, Alan Williams, and Myles Boisen.
