Jazz at The Cherry will once again bring the year to a “bebobing” close with Along Came Betty for another round of what has become a traditional December treat. Join us Sunday, December 10th, for some great music, wine and light fare–all included in the ticket price. Doors open at 1:00pm; performance begins at 2:00pm. Tickets are $35, available online at eventbrite.com or by calling (831) 624-7491.
Spark up your holiday spirit with some of the best bebob and straight-ahead jazz on the West Coast. Along Came Betty will delight you with their rich harmonized sax and trumpet, backed by the classic piano, bass and drums rhythm section.
This group of highly talented musicians (Biff Smith, piano; Brian Stock, trumpet and flugelhorn; Paul Tarantino, saxophone; Zack Westfall, bass; Patrick Tregenza, drums) has performed at many local and national jazz venues, including the Monterey Jazz Festival and the Big Sur Jazz Festival. Since 1998, they have been celebrating the spirit of hard-bop, a seminal movement of 50s and 60s jazz. Pianist and prolific composer Biff Smith’s sophisticated yet highly accessible compositions blend elements of that era with modern sensibilities.
