Jazz in the Neighborhood continues its support of the Electric Squeezebox Orchestra big band at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley. Led by trumpeter Erik Jekabson, ESO is arguably the busiest big band around town. Local favorite Madeline Eastman will be the guest vocalist.
Opening will be the Jazzschool Studio Band. Under the direction of legendary composer, arranger, trombonist, and educator Dave Eshelman, the ensemble showcases the cream of the crop of aspiring, young jazz musicians.
