British jazz composer—and former host on WUSF’s”All Night Jazz” before the station unceremoniously pulled the plug on jazz—Simon Lasky heads into the studio soon, and this is the last gig before his band unveils their work at an album release show this fall.

Joining Lasky in the intimate [email protected] space is trumpeter James Suggs, saxophonists Aaron West and Jack Wilkins, vocalist-songwriter Ona Kirei, plus Peter Mongaya on guitar, bassist Elias Ton and drummer Jonathan Thomas.

Tickets to see Simon Lasky Group play [email protected] in St. Petersburg on Tuesday, April 4 are nearly sold-out and start at $15.
