In honor of Eddie Marshall’s contribution to jazz music and education, Yoshi's offers a very special tribute and benefit concert. The concert honors the memory of the legendary Bay Area drummer who passed away last September. Scholarship funds in his name preserve his legacy at Jazz Camp West and the Berkeley Jazz School of Music and Performance.
Eddie was a long-time leading light of the Bay Area jazz scene, not only because of his musical prowess, but because of his warmth and joyful spirit. As house drummer for the famed night club, Keystone Korner, Marshall played with nearly every major name in jazz, including such icons as Stan Getz, Dexter Gordon, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, as well as Bobby McFerrin and fellow Bay Area-jazz master Bobby Hutcherson.
An All- Star cast of musicians will descend upon the stage with several coming from New York and Los Angeles to participate in this momentous occasion. Eddie’s own group “Holy Mischief” will open the matinee concert, playing compositions and arrangements that Eddie created. Other sets include the Brubeck Institute Quintet, Bobby Hutcherson with John Handy, Tootie Heath, and Bobby McFerrin with Jeff Carney and Paul Nagel.
* 1:00 - 1:30 Holy Mischief featuring Kenny Brooks on saxophone, Matt Clark on piano, Jeff Chambers on bass, Akira Tana on drums, and Jeff Cressman on Trombone
* 1:40 - 2:10 Bobby Hutcherson with John Handy (saxophone), Albert "Tootie" Heath (drums), Joe Gilman (piano) and Glenn Richman (bass)
* 2:20 - 2:40 Brubeck Institiute Jazz Quintet
* 2:50 - 4:00 Bobby McFerrin with Paul Nagel (piano), Jeff Carney (bass) and Alcide Marshall and Vince Lateano as drummers.
