Kristin Korb Trio March 2019


Kristin Korb’s most recent performance in Santa Barbara can be described as going from the ridiculous to the sublime…but in a good way! Super-cali-frgil-istic-expi-ali-dociousis a somewhat ridiculous tune and I Want to Be Loved was definitely sublime. Kristin and her guys showed us that they can do it all….and with ease.

Mads Tolling with Jacob Fischer October 2018


Our October concert certainly broadened our jazz horizons. Rather than our usual straight ahead jazz by a trio or larger band, we were treated to the duo of Danish musicians, violinist Mads Tolling and guitarist Jacob Fischer. What they lacked in number, they made up for with excellence in taste and execution. They were [...]

The Phil Norman Tentet – September 2018


The Santa Barbara Jazz Society was pleased to present the Grammy Nominated Phil Norman Tentet in a rare appearance at SOhO.
