Jazz Combos

Time: 8:00 pm


The 8 p.m. show features three combos: The Wednesday Quintet, Friday Sextet and Monday Quintet. Among other tunes, the Wednesday Quintet plays the theme song to “Quantum of Solace” with vocalist Sandy Lindop, and “Remember,” an original by the group’s guitarist, Alex Diaz. Other players are Lauren Strella (sax), Craig Hull (trombone), Bret Johnson (bass) and Steve Eitzen (drums.)

The Friday Sextet has the unusual lineup of trumpet (Monica Dekat), flute and steel pan (Ahtziri Ramirez), piano (Sandy Lindop), vibes (Nev Mattinson), bass (Matt Engleman) and drums (Jake Hauk.) Among their offerings are “Two for One” by the Skatalites and the New Orleans favorite “St. James Infirmary.”

The Monday Quintet plays Chick Corea’s “Captain Marvel” and Dave Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo a la Turk” and others. Players are Ari Davie on trumpet, Nick Durant on tenor sax and clarinet, Alex Espe on piano, Ian Taylor on bass and Kevin Amos on drums.

10 p.m. Jazz Combos

Two combos will perform the 10 p.m. show: the Friday Quintet and Bossa Continuo. The quintet of Kyle McInnis (alto sax), Josh Foster (trombone), Kris Lang (guitar), Ryan Woempner (bass) and Forrest Smith (drums) will play “Nica’s Dream” by Horace Silver and “Schnell!” by band member Kyle McInnis, among other tunes.

Bossa Continuo (Erin Laetz on flute and sax, Tyler Burkhart on vibes, Matt Engleman on bass and Thatcher Holvick-Norton on percussion) plays an all-Latin jazz set. Vocalist Jo Kuzelka and guitarist Kris Lang join them for one number, and the group leads the evening’s grand finale: a Tito Puente tune that features all the horn players from all five combos.
