Trio du Jour, formed in New Orleans in the 1990s, “Performs hot swingin’ jazz from the 1940s to the present with along with some mellow favorites,” says Pianist Leah Stonum. She is joined by Kansas City bassist Mel Drybread and a guest artist that gives the group an ever-changing sound. Sparky Koerner joins the group on trumpet in January.

Leah, a familiar face at The Tremont House, has been seen on the hotel’s grand piano for seven years in the Toujouse Bar. Previous engagements include playing on New Orleans famed Bourbon Street in various clubs, performing with Jason Marsalis, and touring internationally.

Bassist Drybread has performed with many jazz greats through the years. At 20, he was played regularly with Joe Williams, featured singer with the Count Basie Band. He also played with Robert Goulet and did a stint with the old Tonight Show Band.

Koerner has shared the stage with notable musicians Doc Severinsen, Tom “Bones” Malone, Kevin Eubanks, John Pizzarelli, Diane Schuur, Phil Woods, Mindy Abair, David Benoit, Chris Vadala, Bobby Watson, and Marvin Stamm.
