Wednesday, November 7, 7:30 pm, Rendon Hall at the California Jazz Conservatory
As long time collaborators, composer, pianist/flutist, and educator Erika Oba and bassist Chris Bastian have developed a large repertoire of original work. For this performance, they are joined by drummer Evan Hughes in their debut performance as a trio. Between them, they have played with the Montclair Women’s Big Band, jazz icons such as Joe Lovano and John Scofield, and across a wide range of musical traditions including jazz, opera, blues, flamenco, klezmer, huayno, musical theater, and Afrobeat. Drawing on influences ranging from Thelonious Monk to Okinawan sanshin music, they’ll perform a dynamic set of original and arranged works.
Jazz in the Neighborhood presents its Wednesday night series at CJC with financial support from AFM Musicians Union Local 6.
