John Stowell and Michael Zilber CD Release Performance

Separately, guitarist John Stowell and saxophonist Michael Zilber are among the most respected musician/composers on their instruments in this country. Together, their unique and shifting blend of fire and ice has captivated listeners in duo and quartet settings.

On the heels of their highly-acclaimed CD Live Beauty, named one of the best CDs of the year by Downbeat Magazine, Stowell and Zilber continue their 9-year collaboration by performing material from their new Origin Records studio album, Basement Blues, featuring original pieces from Zilber and Stowell as well as their sterling Bay Area rhythm team of John Shifflett and Jason Lewis.

As Downbeat's Bill Milkowski enthuses in his review, "the potent partnership of guitarist John Stowell and saxophonist Michael Zilber plays out in this highly interactive and adventurous set...fueled by the remarkably empathetic Bay Area rhythm tandem of bassist John Shifflett and drummer Jason Lewis.”

Tickets are $15 advance/$20 door, except Students: $10. Doors open one hour before showtime. If you need more information or have any questions, please call us at #510-654-3808.
