Over the course of this special series The Tom Gershwin Quartet endeavors to explore the musical spirit and honor the legacy of the iconic Chet Baker, with a particular focus on Chat's prolific work on the Pacific Jazz label. Tom Gershwin's professional career began in the United States Army Band, where he performed across the Pacific Northwest and Japan. He received his jazz performance degrees from CU Boulder (undergraduate) and NYU (masters). Tom's projects are all deeply dynamic and balance the framework of finely crafted compositions along with the art of free of expression through improvisation. His sextet has been featured at festivals after fining and honing their sound over several residencies at Nocturne and in 2018, Tom’s released their first album "Our Season". Tom has recorded two other jazz albums: “Sweet Pastimes”, and “Live at Mighty Fine”. Tom has performed and/or recorded with The Temptations, The Revivalists, John Batiste, Father John Misty, Chris Potter, One Republic, DeVotchKa, Opiuo, Leftover Salmon, Juno winner Jayme Stone, and Portugal.The Man at venues including Red Rocks Amphitheater, the Blue Note, and City Park Jazz. Tom Gershwin: trumpet/vocals, Dru Heller: drums, Mark Simon: bass, Peter Stoltzman: piano. [Organizer's description]
