Jazz in the Neighborhood presents Power of Five: New Chamber Jazz for Quintets. Three voracious, innovative young Bay Area jazz composers share their new music in a vibrant exposition of the state of jazz today.

Composer, pianist and flutist, Erika Oba premiers her new chamber jazz suite Strange Moon, inspired by a celestial love story from Japanese folklore. Her group, Ends Meat’ Catastrophe Jazz Ensemble, is an inventive ensemble that extends an invitation to all the sounds of the universe. Drummer and vibraphonist, Dillon Vado, directs his band Never Weather from behind the drums. Like his music, Dillon’s drumming is explosive, groovy, and tranquil at once. The concert is presented as part of Jazz in the Neighborhood’s Next Stage program.  More...
