Back by popular demand Bari Bari and the Aaron Lington Quintet! This show garnered so much enthusiasm last year that we had to make it so again! This year we are pleased to also bring the phenomenal Murray Low Trio to the mix.
John Worley and Bari Bari consists of John Worley - flugelhorn/trumpet, baritone saxophonists Aaron Lington, Fil Lorenz and Geoff Roach and is backed by John's great rhythm section including Murray Low on keys, Tom Bockhold on bass and Paul Van Wageningen on drums. This group pays homage to the hard bop east coast player Pepper Adams and the West Coast Cool School player Gerry Mulligan. These two gentlemen are probably the most influential saxophonists on the current generation of the Bari Sax players. The musicians in Bari Bari are highly sought after players and jazz educators in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. This is a culmination of phenomenal talent that is sure to inspire and delight the listener. www.johnworley.com

Murray Low Trio- Murray Low is the Grammy nominated jazz pianist that Pete Escovedo and seemingly every other fine a musician in the Bay Area call when they need the best, most creative, brilliant pianist arranger around.

He is eclectic, electric and extremely compelling to listen to.
