Guitarist Kenny Wessel leads a trio for the next Monday jazz session at Quinn’s. Perhaps best known for his work in Ornette Coleman’s pioneering electric jazz ensemble, Prime Time, Wessel has distinguished himself as a musician, composer and educator.

The list of artists with whom Wessel has worked with ranges from Lou Reed to Kurt Masur, Donald Fagen to Debashish Bhattacharya, Johnny Hartman to past Quinn’s jazz session artist Karl Berger, among hundreds of others. For this Monday jazz session, Wessel will be joined by Matt Pavolka on bass and Russ Meissner on drums.

The Kenny Wessel Trio will perform at 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24. Quinn’s is located at 330 Main St., Beacon. As with every Monday jazz session at Quinn’s, there is no cover charge at the door but donations for the musicians will be requested and gratefully accepted.
