    The OKB Trio is returning from maternity leave
    on Tuesday, Jan. 23rd from 9PM until 12AM.  
    They will be joined by special guest Lisa Parrott
    on alto saxophone. Oscar Perez, Kuriko Tsugawa
    and Brian Woodruff will release "The Ing...,"
    their first CD as a trio, in April 2018 on QJOG
    Records (yes, that's Queens Jazz OverGround!),
    and Lisa will help them preview some of the
    music, a mix of standards from the outer fringes
    of the Great American Songbook and originals
    contributed by all. They always keep the "ing" in
    the swing!  The Last Word is located at 31-30
    Ditmars Boulevard, Astoria, NY 11105.

    The OKB Trio is hoping to release their as yet
    untitled debut CD soon.  You can now preview
    some tracks on the OKB Trio page to whet your
    appetite.  We were honored to lay down the
    first tracks ever recorded at Chris Benham's
    brand new studio, Big Orange Sheep!  We were
    very excited to bask in the warmth of the
    atmosphere created by our dear friends Chris
    and Kevin Thomas and we look forward to
    sharing the music with you in the near future.
