Nvjs Presents: Erik Jekabson Quartet & John Santos at Silo's Jazz Club and Wine Bar


Silo's Jazz Club and Wine Bar
530 Main St
Napa, CA

4:00 pm




Trumpeter Erik Jekabson and his quartet performing live along with percussionist John Santos. Both Jekabson and Santos (who received a Grammy nomination in the Best Traditional World Music category for his 2009 album La Guerra No) are highly respected educators and working musicians based in the Bay Area. Together, they make engaging, sophisticated jazz that touches upon post-bop, experimental modal music, and Latin jazz. Jekabson’s compositions include the modal “Occupy,” the Afro-jazz-inspired “Like Kenny,” Monk’s “Rhythm-A-Ning” and Sonny Rollins’ “Pent-Up House.” This is adventurous, organic music performed in front of a warmly receptive audience by a band that never fails to swing.
