Noel Jewkes is one of the premier saxophone players in Northern California. His friends at NVJS report Noel seems fully recovered from heart surgery and playing better than ever. And we all love movies, right? So you’re gonna hear some of the finest music ever written for the Silver Screen – some swingin’ flicks!
– Listening to the harmonic adventures of Noel Jewkes is like hearing the entire evolution of modern jazz in one evening. Add a great band, extraordinary guest artists, and you’ve got a terrific start to our 2013 Season.
– “The best mainstream reedman in the Bay Area…
I don’t know of a better contemporary modern saxman anywhere.” Phil Elwood, S.F. Examiner
