Guitarist, Acoustic and Electric Master guitarist Stephen Blum’s career has taken him around the world with some of the biggest names in Jazz, Brazilian, American Blues and Popular music. He has appeared at many top music venues and festivals such as The Montreal Jazz Festival, Maine Festival of the Arts, The Great American Music Hall, Yoshi’s Jazz Club (SF), Cape Cod Jazz Festival, The French Quarter Festival (New Orleans), Smalls Jazz Club (NYC), Wall Street Jazz Festival, SESC Concerts Sao Paulo, Brazil, Snug Harbor, New Orleans and the Portland Performing Arts Center, Portland, Maine. Mr. Blum was honored by the San Francisco Bay Jazz Society by a unanimous vote, to perform with his own group at the Milestones Jazz Club, one of the city’s top performance venues. Steve was born in New York City and began playing professionally at age fifteen. His musical life shows a wealth of “real life” experience as he developed as an artist. Steve Blum has led the Molecular Organ Trio for several years. Akiko, who is from Osaka, Japan, has been playing the organ since she was three and has been part of the New York jazz scene since 2001, most recently leading the album So Cute, So Bad. Akiko has played with legendary drummer Grady Tate, saxophonist, Lou Donaldson and Jeff Hamilton. McClenty Hunter has worked with such greats as Kenny Garrett, Lou Donaldson, Eric Reed, and Dave Stryker, recently heading an album whose name could describe the drummer: The Groove Hunter.

Contemporary, smooth, and eclectic – three words that just begin to describe Albert Rivera, “a modern Jazz Messenger” with one of the most exciting and sought-after saxophone sounds in today’s jazz scene. His albums, Re-Introduction, Inner Peace (Turnaround Records) and his latest Back At It (Truth Revolution Records) have been warmly embraced by critics, who call Albert and his two bandmates, Luques and Zaccai Curtis, “three young artists who are part of the next wave in this jazz ritual.” His new album, Live At The Litchfield Jazz Festival, is due out in the summer of 2018 on Truth Revolution Records. Brothers Luques (bass) and Zaccai (piano) Curtis follow in the rich family tradition of jazz. The music has often been the beneficiary of sibling bonds. Look no further than the Adderley brothers (Cannonball & Nat), the Heath Brothers (Percy, Jimmy, and Albert (Tootie), the Brecker Brothers, or more recently the Roney brothers (Wallace & Antoine), the Parrott sisters (Nicki and Lisa), and the Jensen sisters (Christine & Ingrid). Jazz music has frequently been the family tie that binds. And as with the Curtis Brothers those are also siblings that recorded and performed together. Based on the brilliance of Completion of Proof, clearly Luques and Zaccai Curtis have joined that auspicious tradition.
