Arch 'A.T.' Thompson returns to Inwood Coffeehouse for his eighth feature performance. An energetic master of the flute, he leaves no part of the instrument unexplored with his sometimes percussive, sometimes melodic technique. As most Inwood Coffeehouse fans know, he sings, he scats and he dances, all while playing his flute. A serious student of music since the age of twelve, Arch attended Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles where he gained recognition for his creative and innovative style. He performed and toured internationally and studied at the U.S. Army Conservatory of Music. As a master of contemporary Latin Jazz he was a featured jazz flutist in Puerto Rico playing with such notables as Dave Valentin, Jerry Gonzalez, Frank Lacy, Stefon Harris and Steve Turre. Since arriving in DC, Arch has immersed himself in the diverse musical atmosphere of the city performing a wide range of music from classical to hip-hop. Click here for more info about AT.

Pete Chauvette has been drumming, tapping and occasionally pounding on percussion instruments since childhood. Playing drums in school bands by day and rock-n-roll bands by night, he managed to pick up the rudiments of music making while still in grade school. He began studing marimba in high school, with Garwood Whaley, and went on to earn a Bachelors degree in Music from Virginia Commonwealth University. Over the years, he has played with a wide variety of artists, including Marian McPartland, Little Anthony, and Nicholas Slonimsky.

Born in Rio de Janeiro bassist Leonardo Lucini has been bringing the sounds of Brazilian jazz to American audiences for over a decade. Trained in both classical and jazz styles, he holds a master’s degree in music performance from University of Maryland. He is knowledgeable about many world music styles, including a vast range of Latin music. His own compositions are often based on unique Brazilian rhythmic styles, going far beyond the expected samba and bossa nova to Maracatu and Afoxe.

Ernest 'EC3' Coleman is a veteran in the jazz music industry, drumming behind such greats as Joe Williams, Al McKibbon, Kenny Burrell, George Cables, Laurindo Almeida, Vince Falcone (Frank Sinatra's conductor), Diahann Carroll, Vic Damone, Kevin Toney, and Billy Cosby, to name a few. Besides being the music director for songstress, Loretta Holloway, for over a dozen years, he has performed with the Las Vegas Symphony Orchestra, Caesars Palace Orchestra, Lake Tahoe Harrah's Orchestra, and the Reno Harrah's Orchestra.

In the second half of the evening, fiddler Barb Eshelman
joins Profusion for some old time Americana folk music.
