Fred Randolph Quintet

  • Bird and Beckett 653 Chenery Street San Francisco, CA, 94131 United States (map)

An evening of original modern jazz with gospel and world music influences featuring Fred Randolph on Acoustic/Electric basses, Dan Zemelman on piano, Greg Wyser-Pratte on drums, Sheldon Brown on saxophones and Erik Jekabson on trumpet/flugelhorn. The riveting music encompasses multi-layered compositions and a diverse palette of sounds, ranging from straight ahead to bebop and world. After playing together for many years and recording three CDs, the quintet has melded into a tight-knit force of boundless creativity, energy, and technical virtuosity. The ensemble spirit is complimented by daring improvisation and a dynamic set list, all originals composed by Randolph, who hopes to touch your soul with his music.
