Lloyd Gregory -- The Guitar Master plays Soulful Jazz
Aug

8:00 pm20:00

Lloyd Gregory -- The Guitar Master plays Soulful Jazz

Performing every 1st Thursday of the month (except this month due to Warrior game last week), award-winning guitarist and composer, San Francisco based Lloyd Gregory is a well-established musician whose style is smooth, soulful, melodic, flowing and immediately charismatic. His extensive R&B roots add a distinct texture to his styling. Gregory is a master of both acoustic and electric guitar. 

Lloyd expertly fuses soul, pop and jazz, forging a hybrid that is both enjoyable and intellectually stimulating.”

— Minor 7th: Acoustic Music Review

“I love Lloyd’s style as a musician. He is a sweet, warm guy, which comes out in his music. His music reminds me of a modern-day Wes Montgomery.”

— the legendary Stanley Clarke

Lloyd on his influences:   “Music is comprised of traditions, even when mixed with innovations — so, of course, every musician is building upon sounds that came before. I admire and respect those jazz guitarists, and I learned a lot from them. But my influences also include early soul innovators like Curtis Mayfield, many of the guitarists in the various Motown artists’ bands, and Ike Turner. Going even further, I have been inspired by rock’n’rollers from Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley through Hendrix to Eddie Van Halen. And on the other end of the spectrum I have been influenced by acoustic players who bridged jazz, Latin and classical — like Django Reinhardt, Bola Sete, Andres Segovia and Al De Meola. I never sat down and  learned other guitarists’ solos from their albums. Instead, I studied the tools and language they were using.”

Stage and Studio:  As a studio musician in Los Angeles, Gregory worked with legendary producer Richard Perry and played sessions with top musicians such as Klaus Voorman (The Beatles), Arthur Adams (B.B. King, Quincy Jones), Harvey Mason (Herbie Hancock, George Benson) and Joe Sample (The Crusaders). He has performedwith Rodney Franklin, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Gerald Albright, Lenny Williams (Tower of Power), Freda Payne, The Dells, and Lowell Fulsom. Also as a session player Lloyd played on a Latin-jazz album by The Funky Aztecs.

Gregory has recorded with Martha Reeves, MC Smooth and Freddie Stewart (Sly & The Family Stone) . He has also played on several albums by upcoming blues artists including Zakiya Hooker (John Lee’s daughter), Sugarpie Desanto and Maxine Howard.  In addition, Gregory studied under Warren Nunes and took a Masters Class Seminar from Barney Kessel.

As a solo artist, he has opened for Phoebe Snow, Norman Brown, Bobby Caldwell, Chaka Khan, Kenny “G”, Brian Culbertson, The Whispers, and Rachael Ferrell to name a few.

LLOYD GREGORY -- THE MASTER GUITARIST'S SOULFUL JAZZ
Sep

8:00 pm20:00

LLOYD GREGORY -- THE MASTER GUITARIST'S SOULFUL JAZZ

Performing every 1st Thursday of the month, award-winning guitarist and composer, San Francisco based Lloyd Gregory is a well-established musician whose style is smooth, soulful, melodic, flowing and immediately charismatic. His extensive R&B roots add a distinct texture to his styling. Gregory is a master of both acoustic and electric guitar. 

 

“Lloyd expertly fuses soul, pop and jazz, forging a hybrid that is both enjoyable and intellectually stimulating.”

— Minor 7th: Acoustic Music Review


“I love Lloyd’s style as a musician. He is a sweet, warm guy, which comes out in his music. His music reminds me of a modern-day Wes Montgomery.”

— the legendary Stanley Clarke

 

Lloyd on his influences:   “Music is comprised of traditions, even when mixed with innovations — so, of course, every musician is building upon sounds that came before. I admire and respect those jazz guitarists, and I learned a lot from them. But my influences also include early soul innovators like Curtis Mayfield, many of the guitarists in the various Motown artists’ bands, and Ike Turner. Going even further, I have been inspired by rock’n’rollers from Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley through Hendrix to Eddie Van Halen. And on the other end of the spectrum I have been influenced by acoustic players who bridged jazz, Latin and classical — like Django Reinhardt, Bola Sete, Andres Segovia and Al De Meola. I never sat down and  learned other guitarists’ solos from their albums. Instead, I studied the tools and language they were using.”

 

 

Stage and Studio:  As a studio musician in Los Angeles, Gregory worked with legendary producer Richard Perry and played sessions with top musicians such as Klaus Voorman (The Beatles), Arthur Adams (B.B. King, Quincy Jones), Harvey Mason (Herbie Hancock, George Benson) and Joe Sample (The Crusaders). He has performedwith Rodney Franklin, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Gerald Albright, Lenny Williams (Tower of Power), Freda Payne, The Dells, and Lowell Fulsom. Also as a session player Lloyd played on a Latin-jazz album by The Funky Aztecs.

Gregory has recorded with Martha Reeves, MC Smooth and Freddie Stewart (Sly & The Family Stone) . He has also played on several albums by upcoming blues artists including Zakiya Hooker (John Lee’s daughter), Sugarpie Desanto and Maxine Howard.  In addition, Gregory studied under Warren Nunes and took a Masters Class Seminar from Barney Kessel.

As a solo artist, he has opened for Phoebe Snow, Norman Brown, Bobby Caldwell, Chaka Khan, Kenny “G”, Brian Culbertson, The Whispers, and Rachael Ferrell to name a few.

7:00 pm19:00

Jazz on the Mile featuring Carla Helmbrecht

Grammy-nominated singer/song-writer, Carla Helmbrecht, began her love affair with music at the age of eight. A native of Wisconsin, Carla was raised in a large music-loving family and had an inherent desire for music. It was her father who introduced her to jazz, and it was not uncommon for the entire family to spend endless evenings making music. By age 13, she was singing professionally and continued her musical studies through high school and college. Early influences included Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Julie London, Shirley Horn, Nancy Wilson, and Blossom Dearie. Her dual career in music and Speech Pathology has given her a unique understanding of the balance between vocal efficiency and expression in this fragile instrument – the voice.

Carla has enjoyed living in San Francisco since 1997 – performing, recording, and teaching. She tours both nationally and internationally and has been a featured artist at special events/venues like the KXJZ Sacramento Jazz Concert Series, the cabaret production “Sassy Divas”, the San Francisco International Film Festival, the San Jose Jazz Festival, the Katy/West Houston Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s (Oakland), JZ Brats (Tokyo), the Blue Room (Kansas City), and the Fillmore Jazz Fest. She has had the great pleasure of sharing the stage with the likes of Tony Campizi, Bob Mintzer, Louie Bellson, Peter Horvath, Ernie Watts, Brad Leali, Cyrus Chestnut, Claus Raible, Alvester Garnett, and Akio Sasajima.

His style is reminiscent of the dignity and panache of Duke Ellington and the eloquence of Bill Evans, yet clearly contemporary, and clearly his own. Friends: Don has shared the bandstand with some great musicians including Leroy Vinnegar, Chet Baker, Shorty Rogers and Bud Shank, recordings with renowned bassist David Friesen, and a period as house pianist at the famous Bop City in San Francisco.

Roots, Rum & Reggae feat. Redwood Roots + Poke Bar

Redwood Roots is a Bay Area band with a foundation of Soul, Alt Rock, Reggae and Fusion. When you hear this band, the music takes you back and moves you forward in time, all together. The lineage of the sound is distinctive.

The instrumentation is current with roots to the past. It's old school, new school. You feel like you've heard this music, but you haven't, because it's original. Occasionally, there is that cover tune with a surprise and a twist.

The stories being told will ground you and lift you up. All said, you are either living these stories or someone you know is experiencing them in their lives. So, there is always a connection, musically and or lyrically.

The Redwood Roots debut album, Finding Zion, is now available on 95 on line stores world-wide such as iTunes, Amazon, Google and cdbaby.com.

Walter Savage Jazz Trio

Walter grew up in Watts, where his father was a preacher and where he couldn’t imagine not singing– which he still does plenty, though it’s his work on bass for which he’s best regarded.  He picked up the bass while serving in the military in the 1960s, and never really looked back.  Once back in Los Angeles, he took lessons from legendary bass players of two generations, Al McKibbon and Leroy Vinnegar, and played with Horace Tapscott, Arthur Blythe, Bobby Hutcherson and plenty of others — eventually making his way up to San Francisco where he was heard regularly at Yoshi’s, Jazz at Pearl’s, Enricos, the nearby Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society and other jazz spots.

This evening, Walter will be playing with esteemed musicians, Leo Cavanaugh and Akira Tana.
