DALLAS, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, September 1st from 7:00 until 11:00 pm the John A Lewis trio will bring their unique style of jazz to the Sambuca Uptown restaurant located at 2100 Mckinny Ave across from the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

Worth area.
The trio has recorded two critically acclaimed CDs on the Valarteri Jazz label.
