Jazzy trio will play Saturday at Papa Vito's

The Peter Schlamb Trio featuring Karl McComas-Reichl and Sean Mullins, of Waterloo, will perform at Papa Vito's in Belleville from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday.

"It's jazz with a lot of improv," said Sean, 25, who grew up in Waterloo and now lives in New York City. "It's a little rock. There's a little hip-hop in it. It's all instrumental."

Vibraphonist, composer and St. Louis native Peter Schlamb first collaborated in 2007 with drummer Sean and bassist Karl in New York City.

Over the past six years they have honed a unique style of jazz while touring around the country performing Peter's music. On Saturday, they will play new compositions soon to be released on Schlamb's debut album.

Sean is the son of Michael and Melinda Mullins, of Waterloo. On his visit home, he looks forward to "free food ("Mom makes a pot roast that she's been making since I was a little kid."), air conditioning and having a car."
