The Harold Washington Trio was born in a practice room. Built from members of a high-energy soul ensemble, this multi-cultural trio brings passion and flare to performance. They currently occupy a weekly residency at the Hotel Monaco in downtown Chicago and are regular collaborators with the 2nd Story storytelling series, performances for Shakespeare in the Park, and the Chicago West Community Music Center. Aiming to promote community unity and music, the Harold Washington Trio continues to grow day after day and define themselves in a style of jazz and fusion that gets people excited and on their feet. Members include Jamaal Crowder on flute and saxophone, Alexis Zuniga on piano, and Jacob Brigell on bass.
