Jazz for the chakras: 3rd Eye Trio

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

The 3rd Eye Trio plays The High Note (132 W. Wa­ter St.), at 6 p.m. on Fri­day, July 24. Abra­ham Bur­ton, the trio’s sax­o­phon­ist, re­leased his de­but al­bum, Clos­est to the Sun, in 1994. Join­ing him were pi­anist Marc Cary (whose Rhodes Ahead band played July 19 in Santa Fe as part of the New Mexico Jazz Fes­ti­val), drum­mer Eric McPher­son, and bassist Billy John­son. In the 2000s, Bur­ton has played with the Min­gus Big Band, with whom he’s recorded three al­bums. His band­mates are both drum­mers: McPher­son (who has also played on al­bums by Fred Hersch, Steve Davis, and many other jazz stars) and Nasheet Waits (whose discog­ra­phy in­cludes side­man du­ties with Rah­saan Roland Kirk, An­to­nio Hart, An­drew Hill, and Jason Moran). Tick­ets for the gig are $55 to $150; call 505-670-6482. — Paul Wei­de­man
