Harvey Wainapel Quintet
Just returned to the Bay Area after a two-month stay in Brazil, Harvey Wainapel brings his quintet to the Sound Room, with an all-star cast.
The group's repertoire will include a few Wainapel originals, some lesser-known "jazz standards" and a sprinkling of Brazilian jazz.
The 1998 All Music Guide to Jazz calls saxophonist/clarinetist HARVEY WAINAPEL "one of the most promising and versatile players of his generation." The 2009 Downbeat Critic's Poll lists Harvey as a "rising star" on clarinet. Saxophonist Joe Lovano says, "It's a pleasure to listen to Harvey's soulful interpretations!"
Wainapel has performed with jazz and Brazilian master musicians such as McCoy Tyner, Joe Lovano, Ray Charles, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim, Dave Brubeck, Jovino Santos Neto, and Guinga. He has performed in 22 countries. Wainapel's five CDs feature such company as: pianists Kenny Barron and Mark Levine; bassist Larry Grenadier; Brazilian guitar virtuoso Paulo Bellinati; drummers Kenny Wollesen and Mike Clark; and the Dutch Metropole Orchestra.
