The Lost Trio—Phillip Greenlief (saxophone) of Oakland, Dan Seamans (bass) of Berkeley and Tom Hassett (drums) of San Francisco—premiere Bay Area jazz combo founded in 1994, will play Six By Monk, Six By The Lost Trio, 8 p. m. Saturday, March 12, at the California Jazz Conservatory, formerly known as the Jazzschool, 2087 Addison near Shattuck in downtown Berkeley. 

The program will feature six Thelonious Monk compositions from the Trio's sixth CD, 'Monkwork,' voted onto NPR's Top 10 jazz albums last year, in what will probably be the final concert revisiting of material from that acclaimed album. 

The remaining six tunes are originals by Greenlief and Seamans, live previews, in a way (as Greenlief put it), for a a forthcoming CD of all original Trio numbers. 

Saturday night will also be the last Lost Trio concert for the near future, due to members' personal schedules. 

Tickets: $15 ($1.21 service charge for presale) at or 845-5373. More about The Lost Trio at
