Veteran jazz players unite under the leadership of Jim Grantham, who plays from deep within the tradition of melodic lyricism—Lester Young, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter. Jim has performed with the likes of Bobby McFerrin, George Cables, Eddie Moore, Mark Isham, Ed Kelly, Gaylord Birch, Frank Tusa and Calvin Keys, and has recorded with Jessica Williams and Eddie Henderson. He is also a well-known jazz educator (including a series of workshops in jazz theory and improvisation that he started at San Francisco’s legendary Keystone Korner in the late 1970s).  Jim is also the author of a much used, in-depth text on jazz improvisation.
