Bassist Giulio Xavier Cetto showed up from the Central Valley a couple short years ago and immediately became a star on the local jazz scene. He’s got energy and chops to burn, is practically the house bassist at the Black Cat and gigs constantly all over town when he’s not on the road.
He’s put together a wonderful quartet that he wants to bring into Bird & Beckett Thursday the 27th — with Remy Le Boeuf on saxophone, Javier Santiago on piano and Malachi Whitson on drums.
Saxophonist Remy Le Boeuf came out of Santa Cruz with his pianist brotherÂ Pascal to take the jazz world by storm, releasing four acclaimed albums together, leading up to Remy’s 2019 solo album “Light as a Word.” He’s based in New York now and is traveling out for some west coast gigs.
Javier and Malachi are both fantastic young players that everyone’s been talking about for quite some time. Like Giulio, Javier and Malachi both got early training at the Dave Brubeck Institute out in the Valley. Javier came out of Minneapolis. Post-Brubeck Institute he did graduate work in New York and got busy in all the clubs there. Malachi, a Bay Area native born and raised in Richmond, is currently getting his Masters in Los Angeles, and is back for the summer.Â They’re both future stars without doubt.
This is going to be an electrifying evening at Bird & Beckett. Don’t miss it.
