SYLVIA CUENCA QUINTET

Playing the Music of the Legendary Bobby Hutcherson
——–
This masterfully talented group of musicians will fill the room with hard-swinging jazz magic and sophisticated artistry.
——–
Originally from the Bay Area, NYC based Sylvia Cuenca is a skillful, hard-swinging post-bop/hard bop drummer who toured extensively with Joe Henderson across the globe and performed with legendary trumpeter Clark Terry for more than a decade.  The quintet is rounded out with Lyle Link (tenor saxophone), Essiet Essiet (bass),  Ben Stolorow (piano), and Paul Hanson (bassoon).  Lyle Link (tenor sax), known for his incredible versatility and soulful and sophisticated sound, has played in everything from house shows with Nag Champa (the trip-hop/electronica/experimental jazz band) to a White House concert with Wynton Marsalis.  NYC based Essiet Okon Essiet has performed and recorded with legends such as Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutchinson, Cedar Walton, Abby Lincoln and Mulgrew Miller to name a few.  Bay Area pianist Ben Stolorow is know for his alluring interpretations and “musical sensitivity and sensibilities”, quoting David Hazeltine with whom he has studied in NYC.  Ben has toured and performed throughout Japan and has performed at Yoshi’s, the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, and at the SF Jazz and Healdburg Jazz Festivals.  Bassoonist Paul Hanson, known for his transcendental style, has performed and/or recorded with Wayne Shorter, Bela Fleck and the Flectones, and Miguel Zenon, Boz Scaggs, The Temptations, SF Jazz, Billy Higgins and many more; Paul was featured on the Grammy Award winning album “Outbound”.
