THIS SATURDAY: Come join us Saturday, August 10, 2013, from Noon to 3PM for week five of Court Street Summer Jazz - Osos & Higuera, UPSTAIRS BY Sephora and Pottery Barn in San Luis Obispo!
Come hear Black Market Trio take you on a tour around the world. With an unusual instrumentation of sax, congas/bongo kit, and bass, Black Market Trio covers a range of material from Ellington (Harlem Nocturne, In A Sentimental Mood), cool jazz of the 50's (Eighty-One, Tom Thumb) through Exotica & Bossa Nova (Lust, Girl From Ipanema, Desafinado, Corcovado, Mas Que Nada, etc.) and cocktail era (Fever, The Look of Love) to the present, with their own original funk jazz songs (Lizard People, Give Some to Get Some).
The "warm havana nights" sound of Scott Andrews' sizzlin' saxophone, Joe Duran's cookin' bass, and Abe Robles' smokin' hot bongo and conga drums fill the air with a headstrong and cool confidence. You know you have heard many of these songs before...back in the days when martini's were standard nooner fare... but have you heard them played like this?
It's a whole new re-imagined sound, the playing especially gentle yet fiery, the counterpoint deft and delicate, the sound so damn "cool" that you have to call it that, recreated in a trio form - minimalist style - by three masterful musicians who swing, funk, and pound out a conga dance like no other within miles from the Central Coast of California.
The SLO Jazz Festival will have an info booth and ice cold water for $1 donations at the info table. Their Membership Director will be manning the information booth. Come learn more about the October 12th 1st SLO Jazz Festival and other exciting happenings. See you there!
