The Chief Cherry Quintet's live performances pulse with energy. This group is equally at home blowing on cool standards or enjoying the open channels of free jazz. The band is fronted by two top-rate horn players, Shannon "Chief" Cherry on sax and vocals, and Steve Justice (Tower of Power) on trumpet. Both of these players deliver electrifying solos with a balance of showmanship and grace. Mike Telesmanick (Manhatten Transfer, Brian Setzer Orchestra) sets the stage with his well-known brand of colorful keyboard voicings, and Donald Keith Issitt (bass) and Brock Wollard (drums) groove with an intensity that brings audiences back again and again. You can hear these players individually up and down the East coast, but you will never regret setting aside an evening to hear them perform live together. If you like the sounds of the New York jazz scene, you will definitely enjoy the Chief Cherry Quintet.
