Longtime favorites at Olive Ridley’s in Plattsburgh, the Thugtet, founded by legendary trombonist Rick Davies, will be coming off a release party for its brand-new CD, Rick Davies Thugtet. The CD features eight original tunes by the late musician and SUNY Plattsburgh music professor, who succumbed to cancer in 2015. Davies wrote the music specifically for the Thugtet, a band he formed in 2012 that features musicians from Plattsburgh and surrounding communities, as well as from SUNY Plattsburgh, where he taught for 15 years. CDs will be on sale at the AC.

Thugtet members scheduled to appear include: Herm Matlock on trumpet, a regular soloist for the Adirondack Jazz Ensemble and director of the SUNY Plattsburgh Jazz Ensemble; Wayne Davison on saxophone, former director of the Fredonia Jazz Ensemble, longtime band director in Saranac Lake, and soloist with many North Country groups; guitarist Corey Marsico; bass player Robert Garrow; and percussionist Michael Lewandowski.
