Three on a Tree feat. Tommy Lockett
World class Eureka born Jazz bassist

Tommy Lockett - basses
Dave Wilson - guitar
Michael Curran - drums

One of the many fine products of the Eureka High School Music program cultivated
by legendary Humboldt County music educator, Don Moehnke, bassist Tommy Lockett
went on to further studies at the Berklee School of Music in Boston where he
studied composition with Michael Gibbs, Audio Engineering and Music Synthesis
with Michael Rendish and played in the ensembles of Herb Pomeroy.
He was quickly selected by Frank Macchia for a ground breaking jazz fusion
ensemble Booga Booga and a move to San Francisco and emersion in
the vibrant music world of the Bay Area playing with musicians such as
Mingo Lewis, Atma Anur, Colin Chin, Ron Feuer, and David Goldblatt
among many others. His musical palatte was extended via a stint as a
musician with the fabled Pickle Family Circus at a time that legendary clowns
Bill Irwin, Geoff Hoyle, Masha Dimitri and Larry Pisoni were featured.
A move to LA followed where he gained a reputation as a ghost bassist
for recordings by famous heavy metal bands whose bassists looked good
but could not keep a beat. His engineering skills led to work with a wide
variety of performers including Robbie Robertson, Arturo Sandoval,
The O'Jays, Toad the Wet Sproket, Cheap Trick, Rickie Lee Jones,
Celine Dion, Lyle Lovett, the Temptations, Alabama and many more.
He established his own recording label HEAT RECORDS in 1993 to
record and release his own discs as well as recordings by John Stowell,
Stanley Sagov, Underthings and more. Introductions to legendary film
composer Bill Conti led to a career in Film Scoring and Music Editing
which has led to work with composers such as George Fenton, Mark Isham,
Reinhold Heil, Johnny Klimek and ensembles such as the
London Symphony and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Tommy will be bringing his 'Humboldt Trio' featuring two of our most
ubiquitous jazz players. Drummer Michael Curran lives in Redway
and still manages to have cemented his reputation as one of the areas
most in-demand jazz drummers. And guitarist Dave Wilson can be heard
most nights of any given week with his wife Nalini Cogswell in the
duet Blue Lotus Jazz.

***** Special Request *****
Many of our visiting performers are in need of a place to stay when they come to play.
Any House Concerteers with the wherewithall to take home a musician can count on,
not only free admission, but the scintillating company of a disciplined and conscientious
student of their chosen musical tradition. Let me know if this is a possibility.

A YEAR IN HOUSE CONCERTS 2015

Imagining what a House Concert featuring one tune from each of our performers over the entire year might sound like, I've lined up one example of what each of our performers have provided us over the past year. To be sure, there have been a couple of evenings that missed being recorded and I hope your favorite was not among them. I also hope you can do without titles as announcements are not always intelligible on the recordings. Click on each of these links to access the audio files.
