Way Out West Concert Series - Lisa Mezzacappa Tangle Trio

CJC's Way Out West Concert Series provides composer-performers from the Bay Area and beyond with a Tuesday evening showcase for forward-looking original work in jazz and related genres. Join us weekly in Rendon Hall for Way Out West!

Sheldon Brown, saxophone and clarinets
Lisa Mezzacappa, acoustic bass
Kjell Nordeson, drums

Lisa Mezzacappa’s new power trio makes its debut in the Way Out West series with a set of extroverted and exploratory music by some of the Bay Area’s most accomplished and versatile improvisers. Swedish drummer Kjell Nordeson has toured the world in cantankerous avant jazz groups fronted by Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, and others; and has also studied intricate contemporary chamber repertoire with percussion guru Steven Schick. Kjell and Mezzacappa reunite after a hiatus that followed their collaboration nearly a decade ago in the quartet Cylinder, with Aram Shelton and Darren Johnston. Sheldon Brown, a vital part of the Bay Area creative music community for nearly 30 years, is universally in-demand for his breathless virtuosity on an assortment of woodwinds, and known for a keen musical mind that synthesizes many musical approaches, from microtonal music to big band swing, into a musically complete and distinctive whole. He has toured internationally with Omar Sosa, and plays locally with the Clubfoot Orchestra, Ian Cary Group, Electric Squeezebox Orchestra and Clarinet Thing, and leads several of his own ensembles.

Way Out West Concert Series - John Schott Actual Trio

CJC's Way Out West Concert Series provides composer-performers from the Bay Area and beyond with a Tuesday evening showcase for forward-looking original work in jazz and related genres. Join us weekly in Rendon Hall for Way Out West!

John Schott Actual Trio

John Schott, guitar; Dan Seamans, bass; John Hanes, drums

Rollicking, adventurous, spontaneous, original music that sings and grooves!



The Actual Trio: Original, intricate compositions played by a trio that values spontaneous invention and improvisation. A mindfulness of the legacy of trios, and “rhythm sections”: from Count Basie to Albert Ayler, from Jim Hall to James Blood Ulmer. A commitment to finding the joyful swing in the music and sharing that with audiences.
