Bio

Jacknife - performing on Festival Club Night, Thursday, Oct. 4 @ Merriman’s Playhouse

“One of the most accomplished young firebrands on the scene” - SFJAZZ Saxophonist STEVEN LUGERNER continues his explorations of the music of jazz legend Jackie McLean with JACKNIFE, a hard-hitting West Coast post-bop quintet. Exploring tunes from McLean’s seminal early- and mid-1960s Blue Note albums, Jacknife brings together a formidable cast of rising talent including drummer MICHAEL MITCHELL, bassist GIULIO CETTO and pianist JAVIER SANTIAGO.

“CLEARLY ROOTED IN JAZZ TRADITION, JACKNIFE IS A HUNGRY, YOUNG COMBO THAT FEASTS ON THE THEMES OF THE GREAT JACKIE MCLEAN.” - 3.5 STARS, DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE AUGUST 2016
