Marcus Miller

Marcus Miller

SOLD OUT! “… a musical giant in his own right.” – For Bass Players Only.com Marcus Miller’s work with Miles Davis in the ’80s alone is enough to ensure the two-time Grammy award-winner’s place in the pantheon of jazz. But far from resting on his laurels, Miller, a bassist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer, went on to pursue a successful solo career while continuing to collaborate with an incredibly diverse range of performers from Sinatra to Snoop Dogg. Aside from projects with Eric Clapton, Wayne Shorter, Chaka Khan, and George Benson, Miller has also composed soundtracks for over twenty films. His latest recording Afrodeezia, inspired by a trip to Senegal, pays tribute to his African ancestry. UNESCO recently named Miller an Artist for Peace. $30/Advance $35/Door  (admission tax and service charge additional) No Comp Tix Doors and dinner at 6:00 pm Sponsored by Tom Ralston Concrete...

Alex Conde Quartet “Descarga for Monk” feat. John Santos, Jeff Chambers, Deszon Claiborne

Alex Conde Quartet “Descarga for Monk” feat. John Santos, Jeff Chambers, Deszon Claiborne

“… a steamy pulse of Latin rhythms.” – Music Box Pianist Alex Conde’s fascination with the compositions of Thelonious Monk is not an uncommon one. Over the years many creative jazz artists have interpreted and rearranged Monk’s rhythmically charged melodies in a variety of ways, from swing to Afro-Caribbean. But Conde, in a unique twist, incorporates his flamenco roots for an imaginative reworking and exploration of the jazz legend’s always inspiring music. Conde’s quartet, consisting of Bay Area veterans John Santos on percussion; Jeff Chambers on bass; and Deszon Claiborne on drums, will be performing selections from his most recent recording, Descarga for Monk. $20/Advance $25/Door  (admission tax and service charge additional) Doors and dinner at 6:30 pm www.alexconde.com Read AllAboutJazz...

Tinariwen

Tinariwen

SOLD OUT “…almost as cathartic as loud rock music while being entirely unlike it.” – The New Yorker Starkness, severity, beauty, and trance-inducing vistas. These descriptors could be used to illustrate both the music of Tuareg band Tinariwen and the Saharan Desert they call home. The Tuareg, a nomadic people, have become known for their droning, Arabic blues, propelled by handclap rhythms and repeated chants. Due to political turmoil in their home of Mali, their latest album, Emmaar, was recorded in Joshua Tree, California. The album finds the band perfecting their unique style of African blues, the music taking on an organic feel brought on by the mood and desert landscape of the Mojave. $32/Advance $37/Door  (admission tax and service charge additional) No Comp Tix Doors and dinner at 6:00 pm...
