KYLE EASTWOOD QUINTET

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 13 @ 4:30pm

He may live in Paris now, but Kyle Eastwood's music consistently represents his deep roots in California jazz of the last 50 years. Full of melodic elegance and a sustained sense of groove, the double bass player/composer/arranger's new album Time Pieces is a quintessential self portrait. Featuring his quintet's compositional excellence and his unique passion for lyrical hard bop, the album will be showcased in Eastwood's appearance which launches the BACH's 2015 Fall Series.

MARY STALLINGS QUARTET

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 20 @ 4:30PM

San Francisco's own Mary Stallings is a classic example of how it takes time, musical seasoning and living a full life to mature as a vocalist and to address a lyric properly. While youthful instrumentalists may have something to say, Stallings brings a lifetime of emotional intelligence that enables her to truly inhabit a lyric. Having worked with some of the biggest names in the music business...Basie, Williams, Tjader, Gillespie and Reed just to name a few...Mary Stallings is one of the finest singers to be found anywhere today.

David Udolf - piano, Doug Miller – bass, Leon Joyce Jr. - drums
