the I.C.E Series
The Jazz House is a small, non-descript warehouse
located next to the police station where Martin Luther King and Adeline Street meet.
A blue light and a peculiar "Ant" sign reside above the entrance.
The first Wednesday of every month is dedicated to exploring themes improvisationally in a music environment. This Improvised Composition Experiment takes a page from improv theatre, as all in attendance are encouraged to come up with themes and various combinations of musicians to “perform” the themes.
Bring your instrument and become part of the experiment. Everyone who wants to play will get a chance.
About the Host,
His love for drumming has been influenced by such drumming luminaries as Max Roach, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, Ed Blackwell, Mitch Mitchell, Milford Graves, Han Bennink and Tony Oxley. His ergonomic fluidity and energetic enthusiasm combined with his knowledgeable and assiduous ears have made him an in-demand drummer in the San Francisco bay area, playing with artists such as Eddie Gale, Jim Ryan’s Forward Energy, the CKW trio and James Armstrong, Jr.
His drumming has been referred to as heart-felt,
communicative, explosive and highly imaginative.
