Fresh off of a stellar performance at the 60th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival, Along Came Betty returns to Jazz At The Cherry for another round of rich, harmonized sax and trumpet, backed by the classic piano, bass, and drums rhythm section.
Along Came Betty (Biff Smith, piano; Brian Stock, trumpet and flugelhorn; Paul Tarantino, saxophone; Steve Uccello, bass; Patrick Tregenza, drums) have performed at many local and national jazz venues, including this year’s 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.
Wine, light fare, and incidentally — holiday cheer– all included in the ticket price. Tickets are $25, available online at brownpapertickets.com or by calling (831) 624-7491.
This event is sponsored in part by Morgan Winery.
