John Ellis, tenor sax; Kevn Hays, piano; Clarence Penn, drums; Michael Blanco , bass

Melodic, grooving, and adventurous. This dynamic quartet performs compelling original music by bassist and composer Michael Blanco and features an all-star line up of collaborators: tenor saxophonist John Ellis, pianist Kevin Hays, and master drummer Clarence Penn. The group will be supporting their new album release Spirit Forward on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records, and will be performing compositions praised by Jazz Times magazine for their “dusky, imploring quality, with catchy, insistent hooks and compelling harmonies”.

“Sporting a rich, dark sound on the bass, Michael Blanco has been a highly sought-after talent since arriving in New York in 2000. A gifted bassist whose muscular lines are matched by lyrical upper register work on his solos, Michael particularly shines as a composer.”– Seton Hawkins, Hot House Magazine
