Nelson saxophone player Clinton Swanson debuts the Clinton Swanson Trio this weekend.

On Saturday, May 12 the Clinton Swanson Trio will be making their Nelson debut performance at St. Saviours Anglican Church on corner of Ward and Silica Streets.

The trio brings together three long time musical comrades:  Clinton Swanson on saxophones, Colin Spence on Hammond organ, and Tony Ferraro on drum kit.

Inspired by the soul jazz of the 1960s and 70s played by organ hero Jimmy Smith and sax legend Stanley Turrentine the trio offers a sound that combines soul, gospel, and jazz.

Show time is 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are available at the door. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students.
