Mean to Me: Classic Vocal Jazz Set to a Modern Tune
Thursday, December 14 @ 7:30PM

Mean to Me is a jazz quintet that resurrects classic jazz of the 1920s through 1940s–sometimes interlaced with the more modern stylings of Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Ahmad Jamal–and an eclectic variety of soul-jazz and Latin jazz.
Judy Butterfield – vocals
Ben Slater – saxophone, piano
Cairo McCochran – drums
Dave Shaff – trumpet
Scott Foster – guitar
Adam Gay – bass
Mean to Me is comprised of four core members: Judy, who trained as a cabaret singer but whose love is for soul music; Ben, a pianist interested in exploring jazz’s roots after living in New Orleans; Cairo, a drummer with a deep knowledge of music the world over; and Dave, a trumpeter drawn to more modern and funky sounds. All four grew up in the Bay Area and have played together on and off for ten years.
