Bye Bye Bartok: A Jazz Approach to Classic Symphonic and Chamber Music Themes



What if Béla Bartók wrote “Bye Bye Blackbird”? What if Charlie Parker wrote a prelude in E, or Sun Ra, a symphony in C? We may never know, but five Bay Area voices return to Maybeck to groove, swing, and do their thing over themes by Bach, Bartok, Satie, Tchaikovsky, and others. Chamber jazz from the heart!

This will be a live recording session! After a brief pause, the audience is welcome to stay and listen to any alternate takes that might transpire.




Darren Johnston – trumpet
Matt Renzi – clarinet, tenor sax, English horn
Adam Shulman – piano
Eric Vogler – upright bass
Jon Arkin - drums
