After playing together in numerous other musical settings, Los Angeles based Jon Hatamiya (trombone), Logan Kane (bass), and Jacob Richards (drums) first joined forces in October 2018, showcasing their original music at Los Angeles’s Blue Whale in a collaborative quartet setting. They will be joined by composer, bandleader, and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Athayde for the Bay Area debut of the band.
While each member of the group has a wide variety of notable sideman appearances, including performances and recordings with artists such as David Binney, Michael Buble, Myra Melford, Louis Cole, Steve Lehman, Thumpasaurus, and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, among others, Hatamiya, Kane and Richards are accomplished leaders and composers in their own right. This performance at the wonderful space at St. Alban’s will highlight the group’s improvisational synergy as common ground for each composer’s individual voice.
