KRISTEN STROM and SCOTT SORKIN

Kristen Strom and Scott Sorkin, a Bay Area husband-wife team, have been making waves on the jazz scene nationally. Both are on the faculty of the Stanford Jazz Workshop and San Jose Jazz’s summer education program.

Kristom Strom Scott Sorkin

Kr isten is “among the finest contemporary sax players,” says Paul Freeman, P.A. Daily News entertainment writer. San Jose Mercury jazz writer Andrew Gilbert praised her album “Intention” as revealing “an artist whose musical world is predicated upon the primacy of beautifully rendered melodies.” Kris is also an accomplished vocalist.

A brilliant guitarist, Scott Sorkin has been touring and playing professionally since 1983. He is currently a featured performer with Brazilian-jazz artist Ed Johnson and Novo Tempo, the Kristen Strom Quartet, and the group Crossing Borders.

Join us October 5 for great music, genial socializing, beverages and munchies. Spend a fine afternoon with good company and good vibes. Muy simpatico.

VUCKOVICH/GUARALDI CONCERT A TRIUMPH

PAJA Artistic Director Herb Wong’s final concert promotion was a great success, even though Herb wasn’t there to enjoy the evening—April 26 (Herb passed away on Easter Sunday at age 88). There were emotional tributes to Herb by Harvey Mittler and pianist Larry Vuckovich. See the full review in the May 2014 issue of The Jazz Buff on this web site.
