Interested in hearing some local jazz with a twist? This Saturday, trio Vivo will be making their debut at Hawaii Public Radio’s Atherton Studio with a two-hour live performance. This isn't your traditional jazz trio. Duane Padilla and Norm Foster are members of the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, and Ruth Shiroma Foster also plays piano at her church. She says she tries to bring that gospel sound to her performances.

In addition to original compositions, Vivo also puts its distinctive spin on a variety of American standards, memorable ‘80s hits, local Hawaiian music and Broadway tunes. Expect to hear classic favorites from Elton John, Billy Joel and Cole Porter. "It's pretty eclectic — it's all across the board," says Ruth Shiroma Foster about their song choices. "We also do gypsy jazz tunes."

You can also catch the group at downtown lounge Dragon Upstairs, tucked above Hank’s Café, where they've been performing twice a month since June 2012.

7:30 p.m. Jan. 19, $30 general; $25 HPR members; $15 students with ID, 955-8821, Hawaii Public Radio Atherton Studio, 738 Kaheka St., hawaiipublicradio.org
