Wally Shoup Trioyour tax dollars at work. And working harder than you’re apt to see most of the time. Creative-music stalwart Shoup lassoed his first-ever grant from the city this fall for a series of concerts, and this is your last chance to catch one. Shoup’s free-jazz-aflame trio features the intricate passion of Gust Burns on piano and sophisticated bashing of Bob Rees on drums and vibes. “From a Whisper to a Scream” is the title of the series, which pretty much captures the range of texture and dynamics you’ll get from this unit. And with the open acoustics of the Good Shepherd, no pin will drop unheard. Plus, it’s free!
