The enchantments found in the good measures of Jazz was shared by L'ARCHET Concert Group on Saturday March 19th as they presented The Davey Lantz Trio as part of their Cohen Hall Series. The concert was held at The Cohen Recital Hall within the Fine and Performing Arts Center on the campus of The East Stroudsburg University of PA. The hall's precisioned acoustics enabled every note the musicians played to echo among the consciousness of each member of the modestly sized audience that attended. The Davey Lantz Trio consists of Davey Lantz on Piano, Joshua Crumbly on Upright Bass, and Jimmy Macbride on Drums.

Together, their repertoire of Jazz standards and original pieces composed by Mr. Lantz brought balanced portions of a gentle relaxation to the gathering along with the enthusiasm for life and all it offers that the musical form is well known for. The experience of listening to the concert was like watching the subtle ripples of a rapidly moving river whose uproarious essence is defined by its quiet babblings. The inner beauty of each piece was enticed through the musical skills of the trio which allowed the audience to experience the inner beauty within themselves more clearly. The concert proved to be a wondeful way to spend an afternoon.
