It’s my birthday! Yay! Come on down and celebrate with me. We’re gonna fit a quintet on that stage if it kills us! Featuring the amazing Alyssa Schwarry on vocals, Dan Balmer (guitar), Jeff Leonard (bass) and Jason Palmer (drums). This will be a great night. Music ’til midnight.

Back with one of my favorite formats: the sax, bass & drum trio. So much freedom! So many harmonic possibilities! And what a band! You all know Phil Baker from the jazz and Pink Martini scenes, but it’s very rare to hear him throw down in this context. Sonic treats for your ears! And Ron Steen’s relentless swing and sensitive rhythmic interactions are the definition of superb musicianship. This is gonna be a groovy night for music lovers of all stripes.
