In all my playing years (70 plus) I have never met a woman who plays good jazz trombone. In fact, I have never met one who even plays bad jazz trombone. On Sept 20th that’ll all change because Aubrey Logan is going to perform for the Jazz Society. Not only is she a great Trombone player but she sings up a storm on all of the great jazz songs we love. In fact she won first place at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in the vocal Jazz competition. In fact she’s so good I insisted on playing for her along with Richard Simon on bass and Paul Kreibich on drums. The Santa Barbara Jazz Society has a long tradition of presenting outstanding women vocalists. I guarantee you’ll say it continues when you hear Aubrey Logan. She’s wonderful!!
-Ian Bernard, SBJS President

Currently, Aubrey lives and makes music in Los Angeles, where her voice and talents have appeared on various television shows and albums such as the 57th Grammy Awards with Pharrell Williams, a Josh Groban single, ABC’s the Golbergs, and more.

SBJS Founding Member, Lin Cook, recently had hip surgery, and so far so good. In addition to being a founding jazz society member, Lin is an accomplished jazz pianist.
The SBJS welcomes all of its new and renewing members. Of particular note, new members Don Goldberg and his wife, Maris, met with their longtime friends, Charles and Carol Blakeslee, also new members, for an afternoon of jazz on Sunday at SOhO. That may not be so newsworthy until you hear the rest of the story. Read More
