The George Young Quartet
Sunday March 12th, 2017 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
SOhO 1221 State St # 205, Santa Barbara, CA 93101
The Santa Barbara Jazz Society is honored to present The Hollywood Jazz Quartet featuring George Young at SOhO Sunday, March 12 from 1 to 4pm. Mr. Young, a professional reed player since the late 50’s, is one of the finest technicians in jazz, fusion, rock, swing, be bop, studio, and concerts and although he is one of the most frequently heard, he is one of the most unknown. A virtuoso on most of the reeds, he specializes in tenor and alto saxophones in recording sessions with such musicians as George Benson, Ron Carter, Jack DeJohnette, David Sanchez, the Saturday Night Live Band, and the list goes on and on. Also as a studio musician, he has also contributed to many television and motion- picture soundtracks. Backing up Young are Lou Forestieri on piano, Harvey Newmark on bass, and drummer Mark Stevens.
