Who's at JB's Lounge This Week
Friday, January 2, 2009 10:37 AM
Don't forget to RSVP! Sometimes all it takes to get others out is the fact that it looks like a party. Break the ice! The music will be great and the opportunity to chat comes before and after the show and during the 1/2 hour break between the two 75 minute sets. Here's the lineup this week.
Jim Martinez makes his 5th appearance with us.
His first major professional gig was with legendary jazz trombonist, Sy Zentner. Jim has since performed or recorded with notables like Lionel Hampton, the Stan Kenton Alumni Band, Russell Malone, Jeff Hamilton, the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, and Benny Golson. Jim has performed with the Sacramento Symphony and toured as a featured guest with the U.S. Air Force Jazz Band.
Jim Martinez has made many musical contributions to the area, including his very successful summer concert series of 2006 ? The Sacramento Divas, featuring 12 of Sacramento's finest jazz vocalists. He has also brought some legendary jazz musicians to town, performing concerts from Grass Valley to Sacramento. These include Ed Thigpen, the first drummer for the famous Oscar Peterson Trio.
Join us as we start the new year with one of Sacramento's premier jazz pianists and entertainers.
