The monthly Fourth Friday Jazz Series at the La Jolla Community Center continues with a performance from the Rob Thorsen Trio on Aug. 23. Thorsen is an acclaimed bassist and one of the lynchpins of San Diego’s music community, teaching, mentoring, performing with and inspiring generations of musicians during his career. Most often seen performing alongside the likes of Gilbert Castellanos, Steph Johnson and the Mike Wofford/Holly Hofmann Quartet, this show spotlights Thorsen’s own group, featuring  pianist Hugo Suarez and drummer Richard Sellers. Anyone who appreciates adventurous music and the bass in particular, will enjoy every second of Thorsen’s performance.
