Sponsored by BlueStem Jazz | The quintet features Tom Gullion, sax and flute, Dave Cooper, trumpet and flugelhorn, Dane Richeson, percussion, Mark Urness, bass and Doug White, piano and synthesizer. Together they blend free improv, original compositions and modern jazz classics in playful, dynamic conversation. Lively Latin, swing and fusion rhythms meet rich melodic and harmonic textures in jubilant and pensive songs. This performance will feature: compositions by band members Gullion, White, Cooper, and Urness; fresh interpretations of modern jazz classics by Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, and Pharoah Sanders; and spontaneously created pieces.

Tom has released several critically acclaimed CDs including Carswell and Time It Is, among others.
