Saturday jazz club! when lights are low…
June 18th, 7:30-10pm: The Ways & Means Committee

 

The Ways & Means Committee — trumpeter Gary Bean and alto player Michael Bush, with a a superb rhythm section — Art Khu on piano, Heshima Mark Williams on bass and Ele Howell on drums — is joined by tenor player D’Armour Boone, subbing in for previously scheduled Howard Wiley..

Before heading out to Europe with Idris Ackamoor and the Pyramids this summer, bassist Heshima Mark Williams gets in another session with the Ways & Means Committee, a project of three horn players whose vocations are in medicine and business, but whose hearts are in jazz — two are on board for this date: Dr. Gary Bean on trumpet and flugelhorn and Michael Bush on alto sax. Tenor sax player Dr. David Ferrazares can’t make the gig tonight, but we’re lucky to have a tenor player we haven’t heard before, D’Armour Boone. ¬†As it turns out, D’Armour is a fantastic player, well worth the price of admission! Add that to a terrific band, and you’d be hard put to find fault! Another terrifit jazz club outing!
