Ed Bennett Quintet at Wilfs Restaurant & Bar

2 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2013-02-08 2013-02-08 35 Ed Bennett Quintet at Wilfs Restaurant & Bar Ed Bennett has long been considered one of the West Coast's premiere string bass players. Since his arrival in 1990, Ed has become a mainstay in the Portland jazz community. The fresh sounds of Bennett’s original compositions are be-bop influenced, but unique with twists in their harmonic progressions and unusual forms. The musicians for this performance, Paul Mazzio on trumpet and Flugelhorn, Tim Willcox on tenor and soprano sax, Dan Gaynor on piano, and Jason Palmer on drums, are a winning combination both as accompanists and soloists for Bennett’s originals.

“Ed Bennett is one of those powerhouse players whose virtuosity inspires the other participants on the bandstand to give it all they've got”. GEORGE FENDEL / JAZZSCENE
