Jazz in the Neighborhood presents TrumpetSuperGroup, celebrating the uplifting possibilities of trumpet performance with five trumpeters: Dave Scott, Mario Guarneri, Erik Jekabson, Mike Olmos, and Doug Morton. Backed by the rhythm section of Dan Zemelman, piano, Daniel Fabricant, bass, and Jeff Marrs, drums, they inspire audiences and each other with unmatched range of style, virtuosity, and beauty, mixing classical and jazz with a healthy dose of improvisation. TrumpetSuperGroup's members have performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Santa Rosa Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, John Mayer, Boz Scaggs, Etta James, and Lavay Smith.
This annual event—often a sellout—is accompanied by a new holiday CD recorded at Fantasy Studios, Christmas with TrumpetSuperGroup.
Opening will be the Community Music Center Student Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Darren Johnston.
