POLAND – The Sally Davis Trio, which centers its repertoire around the rich harmonies of the best in classic jazz, will perform at 7 p.m. Monday, July 28, at All Souls Chapel.

The group creates many textures in its music through the use of acoustic and electric piano sounds, bass, tenor and alto saxophones, flute and jazz vocals – and a promise to bring sophistication and a swinging groove to any setting.

Davis is a jazz musician and educator from Portland. Prior to creating her jazz trio, she played piano and sang with Maine’s all-women big band, The Edith Jones Project. Besides performing as a soloist and with the trio, she teaches piano at a private studio in South Portland.

Ken Lloyd plays upright bass as well as electric basses. He has played in music groups of different styles in the Portland area for 25 years, with a jazz focus in recent years. He also plays with the Victory Swing Band and leads Coast Jazz.

The performance is part of the Poland Spring Preservation Society’s summer concert series, which runs every Monday night from June 16 to Aug. 25. Proceeds benefit the preservation of the Maine State Building and All Souls Chapel. Tickets are $5 at the door. For more information, call 998-4142.
