Downtown Boise will be filled with fantastic jazz artists.
Trombonist Andy Martin will start things off (LA’s top
jazz studio soloist). Many did not hear Andy last
year so here is your chance to hear the best. Blues guitarist
Anthony Paul will be joined by vocalist Miss Dee
to scratch that itch for the blues. The Patrick Lamb Band
brings a smooth mix of Funk, R&B and Jazz to bring you their
own grooving’ sound.
The Llew Matthews Trio (12 years as Nancy Wilson’s
music director) will be joined by the sultry stylings of
Lady Mem’Fis with local great Sandon Mayhew on
tenor sax. Guitarist Frank Potenza adds pianist
Larry Fuller to his quartet for an outstanding combination
of talent. Back by demand are Festival favorites Paul
Tillotson, Billy Mitchell with Cherie Buckner-Webb.
Another new addition is Boise Straight Ahead, the HP
Jazz Big Band more great music from our own community. Be
sure to finish the night with Louise Rose in the Bank
of America Centre. This former police officer learned her
craft under Oscar Peterson, Duke Ellington and Leonard
