Sylvia Cuenca Quartet

  • Black Cat 400 Eddy Street San Francisco, CA, 94109 United States (map)

Tickets ($12 - $24)

Sylvia Cuenca is an active drummer on the New York jazz scene. She shared the bandstand with saxophone legend Joe Henderson for 4 years and trumpet legend Clark Terry for 17 years. Sylvia’s hard-swinging post-bop/hard-bop style has been heard on major stages worldwide and on numerous recordings.

Pianist Ben Stolorow possesses a lyrical touch — he interprets every piece with poise and purpose and crafts alluring melodies that cry out for lyrics.

Bassist Doug Miller has toured with the Count Basie Orchestra, The Ellington Orchestra, and Ernestine Anderson. He has played with many of the world’s leading jazz musicians, and co-founded popular jazz groups New Stories and Big Neighborhood.

Australian Saxophonist Andrew Speight won an Aria Award (the Australian version of a Grammy) for his first album. His hard-driving style delivers straight-ahead jazz with a joyous, lively, and clear tone that’s all his.
