The Bryan Bowman Quintet will perform all original jazz compositions from his debut CD Like Minds.
The set is comprised of unique and modern original music that is at once a logical extension of jazz’s tradition and a look into its future. The music is played by some of the finest San Francisco Bay Area musicians.
This straight ahead jazz recording is provocative, energetic, heart wrenching and ultimately accessible and truly listenable. The soulful authenticity of this exciting and reflective work speaks clearly to jazz fans versed in the rich music and legacy of our highly treasured African American jazz masters – far too numerous to name. The group approaches each new song as they would any standard jazz form – allowing the tuneful yet modern melodies to provide inspiration for lively improvisations sharing the breadth of their combined experience and virtuosity.
