Mean To Me: Jazz & Soul, Old & New

March 23, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

| $15 - $20
Mean to Me: Classic Vocal Jazz Set to a Modern Tune
Thursday, December 14 @ 7:30PM

Bay Area-based quintet Mean To Me resurrects classic sounds of the 1920s through 1940s–sometimes including the modern stylings of Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Ahmad Jamal–and a wide variety of soul- and Latin-influenced jazz.

The three core members of Mean to Me are Judy Butterfield, trained as a cabaret singer but whose love is for soul music; Ben Slater, a pianist who became interested in exploring jazz’s roots after living in New Orleans; and Dave Shaff, a trumpeter drawn to more modern and funky sounds. All three grew up in San Francisco and have played together on and off for ten years.
