For this performance of the In The Moment Concert series, produced by KCSM’s Jim Bennett, guitarist Terrence Brewer presents a reimagining of his favorite Wes Montgomery album Full House. Full House is the seventh album and first live jazz album by American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery, released in 1962, on the Riverside record label. It was recorded live at Tsubo in Berkeley, California on June 25, 1962. The Tsubo had been opened by entrepreneur Glenn Ross in September 1961 with jazz radio station, KJAZ-FM, also housed in the same building. Although the establishment was favored among Berkeley residents for not serving alcohol and welcoming minors, Ross could not sustain upkeep on the establishment. It finally closed on October 15, 1962. The venue reemerged as the Jabberwock. Montgomery’s performance featured a quintet that included Wynton Kelly on piano, Johnny Griffin, playing tenor saxophone, Paul Chambers, bass, and Jimmy Cobb, drums. On this occasion, Terrence is joined by saxophonist Steve Heckman, pianist Tim Campbell, bassist Adam Gay, and drummer Isaac Schwartz.
Recently proclaimed by long-time music scribe, David Becker (SF Examiner/AXS.com), as the San Francisco Bay area’s #1 Jazz Guitarist, multiple award winning guitarist Terrence Brewer is a first-call and in-demand bandleader, record producer, concert performer, studio musician, and one of the San Francisco Bay area’s foremost and sought after music educators. In 2016 Brewer celebrated the release of his 10th album as a bandleader, The TB3.
Brewer has lead his various groups in nearly 2500 performances in the last 8 years (over 225 in 2015); performing to sold-out crowds at the 52nd Annual Monterey Jazz Festival, the world famous Yoshi’s at Jack London Square, Yoshi’s San Francisco, SFJAZZ Jazz Festival, and countless other venues.
Jazz in the Neighborhood is pleased to announce that the musicians at this event will be paid in part through the Guaranteed Fair Wages Fund, a pilot program being undertaken by Mario Guarneri to ensure that performers receive guaranteed compensation regardless of ticket sales (and with no tip jar!)
