Award-winning pianist Matt King brings a trio featuring bassist Ratzo Harris and drummer Pete MacDonald to NJ's premier jazz club, Shanghai Jazz. Expect jazz classics from Monk, Mingus, Golson, & Strayhorn et al., selections from the Great American Songbook, some Brazilian jazz, AND...most importantly...the UN-expected. Don't miss this fun evening of jazz (not to mention some amazing Asian cuisine!)
