Event description

Description

World class jazz trumpet player Tom Peron (rhymes with heron) delights listeners with his warm, full-bodied tones and flawless articulation. He was inspired and encouraged by his father who played trumpet with the Sacramento (California) Symphony for 25 years.

In 1982, Peron joined a group led by the extraordinary pianist Jessica Williams, one of his strongest boosters. She introduced him to a fiery San Francisco drummer who had worked with her for years - Bud Spangler. Peron and Spangler felt a mutual rapport and respect as they began performing together. "It was love at first note," Spangler recalls.

With John Wiitala on bass and Jessica Williams as a special guest on piano, Peron and Spangler recorded their debut album as leaders, Interplay, released by Monarch Records in 1994. It is a swinging mix of standards by such immortals as Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins and George Gershwin, plus two Ton Peron originals. It quickly became chartbound on the Gavin and one of Monarch's best sellers.

Playing "straight-ahead jazz for the '90s," the Peron/Spangler group draws inspiration from legendary collaborations of jazz horn players and drummers, i.e. Clifford Brown and Max Roach; the John Coltrane Quartet with Elvin Jones; and Miles Davis with his procession of fine drummers - Philly Joe Jones, Jimmy Cobb, and Tony Williams.

The Sacramento Jazz Coop presents the Tom Peron Quintet playing the music of legendary, trumpeter Clifford Brown, a beautiful player taken too soon, and Miles Davis, a high concept player, composer and bandleader. With Joe Gilman on piano, Rob Lemas on bass, Darius Babazadeh on sax, and Rick Lotter on drums..
