You never know what internationally-renowned bassist/vocalist/composer Jeff Denson is going to do next musically: whether it’s performing solo, or with any number of ensembles with jazz luminaries such as Lee Konitz, Brian Blade, Ralph Alessi, Mimi Fox, Edward Simon and more. Join Jeff as he explores the creation of a brand new ensemble built around his fretless electric bass playing! This lineup features some of the most sought after musicians in the Bay Area including Matt Clark on piano, Hamir Atwal on drums, and (taking a night off from Hamilton) Dave MacNab on guitar. The group will take you on a wild ride, mixing instrumental and vocal jazz influenced by a wide array of musical styles. Come hear why DownBeat Magazine has voted Jeff onto the Rising Stars Critics Poll in both the Male Vocalist and Electric Bassist categories for the past two years in a row!
