The Steve Himes Connection plays some of the smoothest, most sophisticated instrumental jazz in the region, and now the group has a new CD out titled "Running Ahead Of Time". Hear their sound for yourself when the band performs from 9 p.m. to midnight tonight at Dockside Bar and Grill at 2 Kanawha Blvd., E., and again at Taylor Books, 226 Capitol St. from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday for a CD signing and performance.
The group is made up of Steve Himes on electric and acoustic guitars, Jason Gay on tenor and soprano sax (he's the guy who sometimes blows his sax on the sidewalk during the day across from Taylor Books), Chris Hudson on drums and percussion and Deron Sodaro on bass, with snazzy solo guitar assistance from Josh Cannon.
