These versatile players have also made significant contributions to pop, rock, fusion and blues– having performed or recorded with some of the biggest names in music… including Pat Metheny, George Cables, Chick Corea, Steely Dan, Weather Report, Diana Krall, Brad Mehldau and many more. Their 2019 jazz album (Three Nights In LA) was described in All About Jazz as “... the epitome of live improvisational jazz, played with both freedom of expression and pure joy.”
Peter Erskine is one of the most accomplished and respected drummers in modern jazz. He appears on 700 albums and film scores, and has won 2 Grammy Awards plus an Honorary Doctorate from the Berklee School of Music.
George Garzone is recognized as one of jazz’s greatest tenor players. Michael Brecker said: “I’m not the master of the saxophone– George Garzone is”. He is also one of its most revered educators, with noted students including Joshua Redman, Branford Marsalis, Donny McCaslin and countless others.
Alan Pasqua, pianist, has collaborated with a broad swath of pop and jazz royalty—from Tony Williams, Bob Dylan and John Fogerty to Allan Holdsworth, Carlos Santana and Michael Bublé. "Pasqua demonstrates amazing touch and technique. Tasteful… transcendent."– Frank Alkyer / Downbeat
Darek Oles, one of the most sough-after bassists in LA, has performed with an extremely long list of jazz masters– including Brad Mehldau, Billy Higgins, Pat Metheny, Joe Lovano, Eddie Henderson, Charles Lloyd, John Abercrombie, Lee Konitz, and Dave Grusin.
This concert is presented in partnership with the Harwood Museum, Western Jazz Presenters Network (WJPN), the Santa Fe Music Collective, and the Outpost Performance Space.
