The Adam Shulman Quintet presents “Strays” The Music of Billy Strayhorn
Adam Shulman has been a staple of the San Francisco Jazz scene since he moved to the city in 2002. Before the move, Shulman was a student at UC Santa Cruz where he studied with the great Smith Dobson and the trumpeter/arranger Ray Brown. He received his degree in classical performance under the tutelage of the Russian pianist Maria Ezerova.
Currently, Shulman plays regularly with Marcus Shelby in large and small group contexts and with Anton Schwartz mostly in a trio setting. He can also be seen as a sideman with countless bay area musicians and vocalists such as John Wittala, Vince Lateano, Kitty Margolis, Andrew Speight, Dayna Stephens, Ian Cary, and Mike Zilber. This particularly New Years evening, Shulman and other fine Bay Area musicians will be presenting the rich and lyrical music of Billy Strayhorn.
