The David Jones Trio, comprised of Terry Smith, Ted Enderle, and Jones himself, promises to engage listeners with a range of jazz numbers at Peninsula College’s February 9 Studium Generale.
The free event will be held in the Little Theater, starting at 12:35 pm.

He has played professionally around the northwest for three decades and has performed on both coasts with instrumentalists Larry McKenna, Chuck Anderson, Hadley Caliman, Barney McClure, and many others.
