Alexis Lombre Trio

Friday, June 28 @ 5pm
The O&W Acoustic Stage

Joyful and talented, Southside Chicago’s Alexis Lombre is a professional jazz pianist who came to Ann Arbor to study jazz piano performance at University of Michigan. Believing that the true essence of music is how it makes you feel, her musical mission is to keep the “soul” in music alive. Her 2017 début album, Southside Sounds, does just that—it’s a bright, beautiful, and soulful reflection of her upbringing within the Southside’s lively artistic, cultural heritage. Making a name for herself since her teens, Lombre has performed at some of jazz’s major venues and festivals in Chicago, Detroit, New York City, Newark, St. Louis, and Kansas City. She has shared the stage with international renowned jazz musicians, such as Ernest Dawkins, Ingrid Jensen, Kendrick Scott, James Carter, Marion Hayden, Gayelynn McKinney, Bobby Watson, and has studied with Geri Allen, Willie Pickens, and former Jazz Messenger Benny Green. She has provided music for theater company Black Ensemble Theater ‘s “The Marvin Gaye Story” (2016), “At Last: A Tribute to Etta James” (2015) and Manual Cinemas’ “No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks” (2017). Tonight she leads a trio in The Grove.
