Carl Saunders Quartet June 2019


by Natalie Wilson Well, it was definitely the Carl Saunders show last Sunday.  He showed us that after being around for many years, he is still at the top of his game. There is no one that plays the trumpet better or has the same sound. And he brought some great players along to [...]

Dave Tull Quartet May 2019


Where do you begin to describe a music artist such as Leader/Composer/Lyricist/Arranger/Vocalist/Drummer Dave Tull? Mid afternoon May 19, he modestly explained to the Santa Barbara Jazz Society, “I’m a drummer who sings”, yet that barely scratches the surface of Tull’s multi- musical gifts! With his casual manner, Dave certainly made it look easy, belting [...]

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. Kristin has a super [...]

Emmet Cohen Trio February 2019


The Emmet Cohen Trio’s third appearance for The Santa Barbara Jazz Society Feb. 17th was by far their most impressive performance to date! It would have been hard to imagine how this trio of young, New York-based jazz musicians could have sounded any better than last year’s event at SOhO music club, but with [...]
