Greetings fellow jazz lovers! We would like to invite you to a very special night of music this Friday evening at The Grape (2733 E Main St, Ventura CA 93003). 3 incredible musicians, saxophonist Karl Hunter (of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy fame), bassist/contrabassist Josh Turner, and drummer Tyler Hammond will be joining me (Hans Ottsen, guitar) at The Grape’s gorgeous & very spacious new venue location. 7-10pm, 21 and up (sorry kiddos), & NO COVER!! This is a new quartet & we’re so excited to share it with you. We’ve been adding some fantastic new material, chosen some of our favorite arrangements & originals along with some timeless standards we all know & love. From Gershwin to Nate Smith, Miles Davis to Terrance Blanchard & beyond, this will be an evening of positivity, smiles, & sounds that feel good. And don’t forget to arrive dehydrated! The Grape is now the largest full bar in Ventura, offering vast options for rehydration (and dehydration, if you happen to be going that direction Friday night). There’s something for everybody! Hope to see you then! 🍇🎷🎸🔈🥁🎶
Sounds that feel good! Karl Hunter (sax), Hans Ottsen (guitar), Santino Tafarella (contrabass), Mario Calire (drums) 7-10pm no cover 21+
Hans Ottsen Trio returns to The Grape! Joining me will be virtuoso bassist Ric Fierabracci (bassist for Chick Corea, Billy Cobham, Frank Gambale) & the amazing Tyler Hammond on drums. Hope to see you there!
