KUTX Live Jazz Series with Sharon Bourbonnais Quintet 6/26

June 26, 2019 07:00 PM until June 26, 2019 09:00 PM

Sharon Bourbonnais, “A Girl’s Gotta Play.” The leader of the band Tres Bourbonnais perhaps walks in the footsteps of longtime Austin favorite Marcia Ball, mixing swampy blues and rootsy jazz with her piano playing and sassy vocals front and center. Tight rhythms and occasional blasts of horns spice up Bourbonnais’ good-time groove!

Joining me for our show on November 14th will be Mark Epstein on bass. Mark is a prolific bassist playing and recording with music giants like Johnny Winter, Joe Bonamassa, and Willie Nelson to name a few. Check out his interview in bass player magazine: Tom Wells on drums is one of the most talented and highly sought after drummers in Austin Texas! Beth Galiger holds her own with exquisite delicious improvisations on Tenor Sax and Flute. Stephen Farmer will be on the trumpet! Playing trumpet for 30 years, the last 6 years in Austin with Austin greats like Hector Ward & the Big Time and Sly Curtis.
