The trumpeter, winner of the 2014 Thelonious Monk Competition, performs jazz standards, often incorporating spoken word and hip-hop. “His articulation, precise but unlabored, calls to mind the precedent of Clifford Brown, while his bravura phrasing suggests an equal immersion in Freddie Hubbard” (JazzTimes). His sparkling quintet is Greg Ward (sax), Joel Ross (vibes), Jonathan Pinson (drums), and Jeremiah Hunt (bass).

Tickets: $25/general $15/senior +age 30 and under
Tickets available here.

NOCCO opens the year with evocative, locally-sourced music at the heart of the program. Featuring concertmaster Victoria Parker as soloist, Roupen Shakarian’s 2015 Violin Concerto is reflective, elegiac, and replete with echoes of other musics and styles. Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, youthful and exhilarating, opens the concert. It was composed in the final months of Imperial Russia, 1916-17, and takes more direct cues from Mozart, Haydn, and Rossini, among others. Francis Poulenc’s Sinfonietta sits at the other end of the 20th century’s darkest decades, written in 1947; ironically (but typical of Poulenc) it is full of energy, grace, and dancing gestures.

Saturday, October 28th Amendola Vs. Blades Vs. Skerik
9:00pm | Doors at 8:30pm: Amendola Vs. Blades Vs. Skerik
Tickets: $18 adv/ $20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

“The breadth of what we do is so wide we don't have to think about it,” says longtime Bay Area drummer Scott Amendola, when talking about fellow local organist Wil Blades—the other half of the dynamic music duo known as Amendola vs. Blades. “The cool thing is we can play swingin’ old school jazz, funk and rock, African music, to playing free.” Such dynamic range would prove challenging for any band, let alone one consisting merely of eight limbs, two analog keyboards and a drum kit. But it’s a challenge the two friends have eagerly met gig after gig since their auspicious first show together, a performance of Duke Ellington’s “Far East Suite” as an organ and drums arrangement, ten years ago. “It’s all about keeping it fresh,”adds Amendola. “And keeping the audience engaged.” And keeping audiences sonically freshened and engaged throughout their ever-evolving decade-long stint hasn’t been a problem for this uncanny duo, who’ve imprinted plenty of nondescript juke joints: the High Sierra Music Festival, SF Jazz, and the iconic Fillmore, alike with their slithery sound, enough to make stalwart critics like the SF Chronicle’s Joel Selvin squawk: "As for Wil Blades and Scott Amendola, these two Young Turks of the San Francisco jazz scene are bringing the organ-drum duo into the 21st century."
