Lunchtime concert for Studium Generale at college

PORT ANGELES — The David Jones Trio will take the Little Theater stage at 12:35 p.m. Thursday on Peninsula College’s main campus for a Studium Generale performance.

The event will be free and open to the public at the theater, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

David P. Jones is the head of the music program at Peninsula College and has served as director of Peninsula College’s Jazz Ensemble since 2008.

He has performed with Bob Curnow, Mike Bisio, Brad Sheppik, Jazz Police, Craig Buhler and many other local jazz musicians.

His trio with Ted Enderle (bass) and Terry Smith (drums) has backed Dmitri Matheny, Mark Lewis and John Stowell as well as performing several times in the Port Angeles area during the past few years, according to a press release.

Enderle and Smith “are two of the finest musicians on their respective instruments in the Pacific Northwest with experience in many different styles of music.

“Their collective groove is always a treat for the audience and for the other musicians on the bandstand,” organizers have said.

Jones is also a noted jazz composer/arranger whose works have been performed by the Bob Curnow Big Band, Jazz Police, Jim Cutler Big Band, Straight No Chaser Big Band and many college jazz ensembles.

Smith began his professional music career in the mid-’70s. Embracing the philosophy of never turning down a gig, he has become equally adept in a wide range of musical styles including funk, jazz, blues, rock and country, organizers said.

He is currently the backbone of local groups Kayhoti, Joy In Mudville and The Crocs.

Enderle, originally from Philadelphia, studied double bass with noted jazz bassist Al Stauffer and with Roger Scott, principal bassist with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

He has performed on both coasts of the U.S. with an impressive range of jazz artists.
