PJS Presents: Adam James Sextet
Support by Harry Mitchell Quintet
Bassplayer Pete Jeavons leads this quintet featuring long time friends and musical co-conspirators Jamie Oehlers (saxophones) Jeremy Greig (trombone), Tom O’Halloran (keys) and Daniel Susnjar (drums). Performing a number of Pete’s original works as well as some arrangements of classic and lesser-known jazz standards, this quintet promises an evening of interesting original music and dynamic interplay.
