Friday, September 5
Gene Argel-Jay Thomas, Special Reunion Show

Gene Argel – Hammond B3 Organ
Jay Thomas
– sax and trumpet
Greg Williamson – drums

This will be a party! Yes, we’ll have a Hammond B3 organ at Hiroshi’s for Jazz & Sushi… Gene Argel is a native of the Pacific Northwest, and was a much loved fixture and “monster player” on the Seattle Jazz scene until his move to Hawaii in 1980. He dazzles his audiences with his jazz, blues, and Latin rhythms. Jay Thomas especially remembers his funky earthy inflections. Gene has played with a number of talented artists such as Gabe Balthazar, Joe Henderson, Henry Allen, Emil Richards, Branford Marsalis, Michael Brecker, Bill Evans and George Benson. Add to the mix some new friends with “funky drummer” Greg Williamson and an undisclosed guest horn… Might there be a recording in process?
