A swinging early Sunday evening!
System 6, all-stars - headed up by British born saxophonist BENN CLATWORTHY who sounds a little like Warne Marsh with touches of Sonny Rollins.
Ron Stout trumpet, Yayo Morales drums, Joey Sellers trombone, Bryan Velasco piano, and Brian Wright bass.
Look at those names! … Each of his players deserves a page of his own! They are the perfect example of the stellar musicians we are lucky enough to have right here in Los Angeles. And when it comes to swinging... this band is living proof that size really doesn’t matter.
Some quotes ( from over the pond, etc. ): “Gladiator of the sax.” Manchester Evening News / “Sublime.” London Observer / “Most creative jazz this side of Sonny Rollins.” Edinburgh Evening News / “Clatworthy seemed to empty his very soul into his sax.” New York Times. John Beasley sums it up... “Benn Clatworthy plays jazz with passion, soul, and authority. All steeped in tradition and roots. It doesn’t get any better!”
