Jazz Trio


The Guide is a rootsy acoustic analog funky folk-jazz trio with Jake Leckie (upright bass), Nadav Peled (guitar), and Beth Goodfellow (drums). The group was formed at a series of outdoor jam sessions, and has since performed at The Tucson Jazz Festival, Horizons Jazz Series at Ace Hotel Palm Springs, and several of LA’s jazz venues, including ETA, Sam First, Bacari, Petit Ermitage, The Dresden, and Three Clubs, and a monthly residency at Tabula Rasa.

Comfortable playing bebop, Ethiopian funk, folk/pop covers, and their own compositions, there is something for everyone in this trio. Their original music is organic, triadic, and in the pocket. Honest, singable melodies are supported by compelling harmonic movement. The interactive playing style gives the trio a cohesive and intimate vibe which can be enjoyed from the first note to the last vamp. The album, "The Guide" was released on Ropeadope Records in April 2022 to critical acclaim.


Compositions by the trio (Jake Leckie, Nadav Peled, & Beth Goodfellow) as well as our original arrangements of: Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, American Songbook/Jazz standards, and Traditional Ethiopian Music.
