For Cinco De Mayo in our Thursday Night Jazz Series, we are pleased to present System VII.
Described by their Grammy winning Trumpeter, Ron Stout, as “Coltrane Meets Cubano,” this sizzling latin jazz combo is led by SoCal’s hardest working saxophonist, Benn Clatworthy. Award winning Trombonist Joey Sellers rounds out the trio of horns that are backed by the versatile Bryan Vehalscoe on piano, and a deeply talented rhythm section featuring the nimble fingers of Brian J Wrighton on bass, and two native Cubanos, drummer Jorge Carbonell and conguero Santiago Santiuste.
This amazing seven piece band constitutes the largest congregation of outstanding talent ever to appear on the Barley Forge stage all at the same time. You don’t want to miss it.
