Visit the Mission Playhouse June 21st at 6:30pm to enjoy the first of four talented and entertaining ensembles who bring Jazz Nights to the Playhouse from June through August!
Kicking off our 2nd Annual Jazz Nights series is the Elliott Caine Quintet. Influenced by artists from Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers to Tito Puente and Mongo Santamaria, come for a night of Bebop, Boogaloo, and Latin Jazz.
Latin Beat Magazine describes Elliott Caine as “one of the West Coast’s finest trumpeters.” Cadence Magazine describes him “as a fire-breathing trumpeter in the lineage of Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan and his band is just as sharp.” Elliott has performed and/or recorded with Teddy Edwards, Barbara Morrison, Wyclef Jean, Beck, The Beastie Boys, and numerous others. His original compositions have been heard on programs including The Oprah Winfrey Show and Late Night with David Letterman.
Joining Elliott are Scott Gilman (tenor sax), Rick Olson (piano), Trevor Ware (bass), and Kenny Elliott (drums).
Parking is free. We provide fold up chairs (first come, first served). You can bring your own chair if you’d like.
