Ask the musicians: Some of the most fun to be had at the Healdsburg Jazz Festival takes place in the lobby of the Hotel Healdsburg, where the playing goes until midnight. The final Friday and Saturday nights of the fest, the Lorca Hart Trio will be holding forth.

The son of drumming titan Billy Hart, Lorca Hart has been carving out his own niche on the instrument, showing the kind of versatility that’s gotten him work with folks like Calvin Keys, Julian Lage, Hugh Masakela and Red Holloway. Marinating in the L.A. Scene while studying at Cal Arts enabled him to put together the crack band he’ll have at the hotel: pianist Josh Nelson, who’s worked with Christian McBride, Tom Scott and Matt Wilson, and bassist Edwin Livingston, a Texas terror sought out by Elvin Jones, Los Hombres Calientes, Hubert Laws and they both played with Natalie Cole. Together, the trio self produced the 2010 CD, Recollections.

This is the place to be when the Raven concerts get out. You never know who will stop by and sit in.
