A piano-guitar-vibes configuration inspired by a stormy day’s immersion in the classic live 1958 George Shearing Quintet recording, “George Shearing on Stage!” That lp featured pianist Shearing in the company of guitarist Jean Thielemans, vibraphonist Emil Richards, bassist Al McKibbon, conguero Armando Peraza and traps drummer Percy Brice.

Grant and his confederates will take the music wherever they want, for your pleasure. Not a hotplate re-creation of a classic, but rather an original concoction made to showcase the freshest San Francisco jazz flavors.
