Joe & Yuka Hunt Quartet Friday 5/12 at Third Life Studio.
Mandorla Music presentsthe Joe & Yuka Hunt Quartet at Third Life Studio
Drummer Joe Hunt & pianist and vocalist Yuka Hamano Hunt are coming back, this time with a quartet featuring bassist Bronek Suchanek and alto saxophonist Mark Pinto. Joe and Yuka play classic jazz with such warmth and taste, and always with the finest collaborators. And Joe's an unassuming guy but it's a real thrill to present a player with direct ties to such giants as Bill Evans and Stan Getz - he worked with each of them early in his career. Here's a great All About Jazz profile of Joe with some fascinating stories of his life in jazz. And here's a recent episode of the 'Jazz From The Combs' web series featuring Joe and Yuka.
