Steve Bailey is a Warwick-endorsed bass player known, among other things, for his pioneering playing made on the 6-string fretless bass. He received full scholarships to both the University of...

JHME is so pleased to have our spectacular local jazz pianist and composer start off the night with her brilliant talents, irresistible personality and impressive repertoire. "Pam's solo concert is a celebration of jazz piano that ranges in style from ragtime to contemporary jazz, and features compositions by James P. Johnson and Fats Waller, through Duke Ellington and Errol Garner, on up to Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock as well as her own originals.  More than a survey of the music, however, her performances are a thrilling blend of monstrous piano chops and a fun, effusive personality." -website.
