East Of Shirley

East of Shirley" is a 4-piece ensemble that writes and plays songs of the road, of journeys down desert canyons and up remote mountain passes, songs of the soul that blend classic American folk, early rock, blues and roots stylings with the traveling sensibilities of Jack London, Bruce Chatwin, and Peter Matthiessen. Along the way, "Shirley" focuses mostly on performing original compositions. But any given evening will also find us covering tunes by artists from a broader storytelling landscape, including Bruce Cockburn, Steve Goodman, and Townes Van Zandt.

Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing regularly at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Ervin Dhimo on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.
