Michael O'Neill Quartet
After a recent performance, a reviewer enthused that Michael ONeills saxophone work is extraordinary. He plays with orchestral diction, yet classic jazz chops. It makes him a rare treat.
A San Diego native, Michael began studying clarinet at age eight. He took up the saxophone at thirteen and performed in school bands and orchestras, later studying composition and arranging in college. After graduate school in Texas, he returned to the Bay Area and studied with the great Joe Henderson.
Michael has created several groups of outstanding musicians that feature his original music. In addition, he has composed scores for documentaries, feature films and television for which he has a long list of credits. For this event he has put together a stellar band featuring Peter Horvath on piano, Jason Lewis on drums, John Shifflett on bass and Michael on saxophones and clarinet.
They will be presenting original compositions from members of the band as well as new arrangements of great jazz standards by the likes of Dexter Gordon and Herbie Hancock.
This is a must see!
