The quietness of the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library, big plush chairs, light snacks, low light, and a small, intimate crowd was the perfect setting for the April 7 evening performance by the Dave Wild Trio from Waco.
According to Library Director Lisa Youngblood, April is Jazz Appreciation Month, and the theme of the music for the evening was Jazz from the 20th Century.
Beverly McNair from Killeen told the Herald that this was her first time to hear the trio and they were fantastic.
“I saw the information about this on Facebook and thought it would be a great way to end a long work week,” she said.
McNair’s cousins, Brandon and B.J. Brown from Charleston, S.C., also enjoyed the music.
Brandon said one of his favorites is jazz.
“I just moved here a couple of weeks ago and saw this was happening then I knew I couldn’t miss it,” Brown said. “Jazz has its own feel and I think people from any era and age bracket can enjoy it.”
Members of the trio are Charles Burleson, drums; Dave Wild, keyboard and soprano saxophone plus Vincent Bryce, string and electric bass.
The group has been performing together for about 15 years.
