    Long a mainstay in the Twin Cities jazz community, pianist Chris Lomheim is known for his affinity for Bill Evans, his sublime skills as a singer's accompanist, and for his creative, lush compositions. Yet Lomheim's recorded output has been limited - his last trio recording was released in 2002 (The Bridge, Artegra), his first (1994, Igmod) was aptly titled And You've Been Waiting. Figuring he had waited long enough, Lomheim applied for a state arts board grant to write and record new trio music, yielding Timelines, released in October with trio pals Gordy Johnson on bass and Jay Epstein on drums-- the same cast from that first recording 20 years ago.  With Andrew Bergmann filling in on bass, the Chris Lomheim Trio reprises many of the compositions on Timelines and more as the featured artists on Saturday Night Jazz at the Black Dog in Saint Paul on Saturday, November 22 at 8:30 pm. Opening the evening will be guitar virtuoso Joel Shapira in a solo set at 7 pm.
