Folktale Winery is excited to welcome Along Came Betty to the stage for their first performance in Folktale’s Jazz In The Gallery series!
From 4:30pm-7:30pm, Along Came Betty will be playing some hard-bop, a seminal movement of 50s and 60s jazz music. Pianist and prolific composer Biff Smith’s sophisticated yet highly accessible compositions blend elements of that era with modern sensibilities. The rich sound of harmonized sax and trumpet backed by the classic piano, bass, and drums result in fun, fresh, straight-ahead jazz.
The evening’s lineup will be
– Brian Stock: Trumpet and Flugelhorn
– Paul Tarantino: Saxophone
– Biff Smith: Piano
– Heath Proskin: Bass
– Patrick Tregenza: Drums
Along Came Betty plays regularly around the Monterey area and even opened the 1999, 2003 and 2007 Monterey Jazz Festivals and performed at the Big Sur Jazz Festival in 2000 and 2002. To find out more, check out their website.
