Drummer Christian Kyle Burgs arrived in San Francisco out of Houston last September to enroll in the inaugural class of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s undergraduate degree program in “roots, jazz & American music” (read: JAZZ!). Bassist Cris Carrera and tenor player Jayden Clark turned up at the same time for the same reason.

We’ve been hearing these players and their cohort of twelve for the past six months in a monthly jam session here at the shop, and we quickly realized that any of them could lead a tight unit with unbelievable talent and fresh energy to burn!

For this date, Christian has also enlisted San Francisco native son Zack Shubert to handle the piano duties.

You’re in for an earful!

Jayden Clark, tenor saxophone – Sydney, Australia
