From the organizer

Three voracious, innovative young Bay Area jazz composers share their new music in a vibrant exposition of the state of jazz today. Brazilian composer, guitarist, and vocalist, Ian Faquini leads a luminous exploration of traditional Brazilian rhythms and rich harmonies with his group, Quinteto Brasiliense. Composer, pianist and flutist, Erika Oba premiers her new chamber jazz suite Strange Moon, inspired by a celestial love story from Japanese folklore. Her group, Ends Meat’ Catastrophe Jazz Ensemble, is an inventive ensemble that extends an invitation to all the sounds of the universe. Drummer and vibraphonist, Dillon Vado, directs his band Never Weather from behind the drums. Like his music, Dillon’s drumming is explosive, groovy, and tranquil at once. The concert is presented as part of Jazz in the Neighborhood’s Next Stage program.
