Drummer Stephen Marley has a special affinity for the traditional jazz trio comprised of piano, bass and drums. A retired ad photographer, Stephen often uses the analogy of a camera tripod to describe the synergistic potential of this trio format. “The tripod’s three legs give it incredible strength and adaptability - each leg is vital, yet each functions independently - raising or lowering to adjust to very different terrains. The piano, bass, drum trio allows the musical legs to interact in a similar manner, independently, but combining with strength and purpose.”
The parents of our pianist, Terrigal Burn, realized that their sons earliest howls while harmonically sophisticated, would never get him to Carnegie Hall. They introduced him to the piano at an early age, and thus began the daily grind (including on Christmas morning!) of piano practice. At age 13, considering the option of quitting the piano altogether, or moving from classical to a different genre, Terrigal embraced jazz… partly for love of jazz, partly a rebellion against the parental yoke. — Terrigal’s father once remarked that the later works of John Coltrane were offensive to his ears and characterizing the sounds as those that might come from a pig being stuck with a knife. (A perspective Terrigal does not share).
The final “leg” of the MPB trio is bassist, Doug Pohorski - a graduate of the Jazz Studies Program at San Jose State and a supremely talented musician who has deservedly attained “first call” status within the Bay Area jazz scene. Doug is also a prolific composer, arranger and recording studio owner - He has engineered and produced many recordings for local artists.

"Rock, roll, rhythm, and blues is what we started with in the early 60’s......we listened to and played it all. Music was not so focused as it is today. People danced and enjoyed it; musicians experimented. Call it what you like, it’s me and my friends doing what we do......”

GRAMMY Nominated, Andre Thierry is a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of other musicians and music lovers since he was a toddler. Andre’s French Creole heritage is deeply rooted in Louisiana although he was born and reared in northern California. Michael Tisserand, author of The Kingdom of Zydeco, considered the definitive book on the history of Zydeco music, wrote, “In America, great migrations produce great music. Just as Delta musicians took Highway 61 to Chicago and electrified their blues, so did the Creoles and Cajuns migrate to California and establish vital dance communities. Now the California scenes rival anything back home in Louisiana, and that’s due to players like Andre Thierry, a standard bearer for the new generation. Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast, and he combines youthful vigor with a mature appreciation for his inherited tradition.”

Mary Ellen Duell: Sunday, January 14th @ 2:00pm
