Look for Sax and Violins at the Zocalo Café this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
For over a year now these five busy local musicians have made time to get together regularly and explore a variety of standard jazz and Latin tunes. This group has a lot of fun playing together and it shows.
Saxophone and violin is an unusual combination that mixes well with acoustic bass, vocals and keyboards.
Ralph Barrat’s voice is warm and resonant, with the timbre of a Bobby Darrin or Sinatra. John Hyde is a top-shelf musician with extensive experience carrying a steady swinging groove on bass in a wide range of contexts all over North America with renowned musicians. On violin, Blaine Dunaway effortlessly invents intriguing melodies reflecting his substantial breadth of musical experience and interest. Playing tenor, alto and soprano saxophone as well as flute, Tony Morrison enjoyed performing in a broad variety of scenarios and styles during the past 30 years.
Together as Sax and Violins staying out of treble, they are charged and ready to play or you this Saturday at the Zocalo at 7:30 p.m.
