First time on the band Michael Schwartz tenor saxophone and Zev Shearn-Nance drums – Jon Hammond Trio, Jazz at Smiley’s Schooner Saloon in Bolinas California – special thanks: Don Deane

Tenor Saxophonist Michael Schwartz is a member of the SF JAZZ All Star High School Orchestra, I was invited to hear them play by Martin Mueller Executive Director of New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, they sounded really great under the direction of Paul Contos.

Drummer Zev Shearn-Nance is in his first year at USC University of Southern California and studying drums with Peter Erskine and in the jazz program under Bob Mintzer.

First time on Jon Hammond Band in Trio formation, no rehearsal or sound check, just hit and quit.
