Description

An octet with an unusual lineup--trumpet, trombone, two
saxes, vibes, guitar, bass, and drums--Octobop is reminiscent of the
pianoless quartet of Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker in the 1950s. Not
satisfied with simply recreating the past, Octobop updates the classics and
adds contemporary flair for an unusual and enjoying experience.

Now in its twelfth year together, Octobop has an international following
with fans on every continent. The group is a San Jose Jazz Summer Fest
favorite, and has performed at Left Coast Live, Kuumbwa Jazz Center,
Yoshi’s, and other great Jazz rooms and festivals up and down the West
Coast. With four acclaimed discs to its credit, Octobop’s latest CD, Very
Early, reached #4 on the CMJ Jazz charts.
