Bio

Featuring:
Joel Frahm- saxophone
Dan Loomis- bass
Ernesto Cervini- drums

The award-winning saxophonist Joel Frahm is astonishing. “No matter the setting or style, whether straight-ahead or adventurous, Joel’s always captivated me with his warm sound…and his skill at striking a balance between swing and open playing.”Jazz Times. One of the most virtuous performers, this 2019 GRAMMY winning artist (“Back to Sunset” Album) is known for his bold, inventive tenor sound. Having studied music alongside Brad Mehldau, Frahm has also played with the likes of Bill Charlap and Dianne Shuur.

“Frahm recorded an album of duets with Brad Mehldau, a pianist with a much higher profile, but it was a meeting of equals, and not just because the two musicians had met in their teens.” The New York Times. His unapologetic emotional outpouring into music is one you must witness for yourself.
