Red Poppy Art House: Mean to Me: Classic Jazz Reworked with a Funky Step

November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$15 – $20

Mean to Me is a quintet that resurrects classic jazz of the 1920s through 1940s—sometimes interlaced with the more modern stylings of Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Ahmad Jamal—and an eclectic variety of soul and Latin jazz.

FEATURING:
Judy Butterfield – vocals
Ben Slater – saxophone, piano

Dave Shaff – trumpet, washboard
Cairo McCochran – drums
TBA – bass

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Mean to Me is comprised of four core members: Judy Butterfield, who trained as a cabaret singer but whose love is for soul music; Ben Slater, a pianist interested in exploring jazz’s roots after living in New Orleans; Cairo McCochran, a drummer with a deep knowledge of music the world over; and Dave Shaff, a trumpeter drawn to more modern and funky sounds. All four grew up in the Bay Area and have played together on and off for ten years.
