phil-norman-tentetThe Santa Barbara Jazz Society is excited to present the Phil Norman Tentet in a rare appearance on Sunday, July 12 from 1-4pm at SOhO.

What is a tentet? Think of hearing the essence of the very best big band, with all the thrills of that remarkable sound, but with a lot less volume. If you like Miles Davis and the Birth of the Cool and the West Coast bands of the 50’s and the Dave Pell Octet, this is a band for you! The Tentet will perform selections from Totally Live and Encore CD’s. Encore was on Jazzweek’s national airplay for 6 months and was ranked as high as #14.

Exploring new ideas from gifted composers and arrangers like Bob Florence, Allen Broadbent, Kim Richmond, Scott Whitfield, Tom Kubis, the band reads like a Who’s Who of great jazz players. Check out this line up: Christian Jacob – piano, Kevin Axt – bass, Ray Brinker – drums, Brad Dutz – percussion, Yarone Levy – guitar, Carl Saunders and Ron Stout – trumpets and flugel, Scott Whitfield -trombone, Jeff Driskill – alto & soprano sax/flute, Adam Schroeder – baritone sax and leader Phil Norman – tenor sax and clarinet.

The Tentet is brought to us through the generosity of Lucille and Richard Jannsen. Learn more about the Phil Norman Tenet.

Admission for the concert is $15 for Jazz Society members, $25 for non-members, and $7 for full time students and local jazz musicians with membership. We hope you can join us for a memorable afternoon of great jazz.

There are no reservations. Members will be admitted first and seating is limited so plan to arrive early. Tickets are available ONLY at the door and doors open at 12:30. For more information, please call 805.680.2651.
