But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Saturday, October 28th – 7:30-10:00 pm
John Stein, with the Dave Bass Trio
jazz club! when lights are low…
$15 cover charge

Internationally renowned jazz guitarist and composer John Stein has released many wonderful albums under his own name and performs internationally as well as maintaining a faculty position at Berklee College of Music.  He has played live and recorded with some of the world’s finest jazz artists, including David “Fathead” Newman, Larry Goldings, Lou Donaldson, Dr. Lonnie Smith and Bill Pierce.

John Stein . . . the poet of the classical jazz guitar.
–Dick Crockett “The Voice” — 88.7 fm

What a gift this man has. He’s in an elite class: a mere handful of jazz guitarists who consistently put taste above chops and flash. John Stein has the ability to say so much more with less effort than most of his contemporaries can muster.
–Wayne Everett Goins, Kansas City Jazz Ambassadors Magazine

Stein has the touch — a bond with the guitar that only comes from deep spiritual dedication to those strings. Playing a collection of songs so sweetly is a sign of pure musical intelligence.
–Layla Macoran, Jazz Inside New York


John will be appearing with
The Dave Bass Trio

Dave Bass, piano
Ben Kopf, bass
Jack Stanfill, drums.

Dave Bass, a former Deputy Attorney General for California, has recorded with Karrin Allyson, Phil Woods, Ignacio Berroa, Ernie Watts, Conrad Herwig and Harvie S. Both of Dave’s releases have had wonderful success on the Jazz Radio Charts. Dave’s album “Gone” hit #2 on the JazzWeek charts and his album “NYC Sessions” hit #5.” DownBeat gave NYC Sessions a coveted 4 Stars and named it one of “the best albums of 2015.”

Dave’s trio and John will perform both together and separately, offering some of their favorite standards as well as their own compositions, plus some bebop, blues, bossa nova, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, ballads and, of course, straight-ahead jazz, all played by masterful musicians.
