Jazz at the MACC: Jazz Funk

Jazz at the MACC: Jazz Funk

I can’t wait to introduce you all to my friend Dan Navarro. He’s one of the most in demand bass players in Tampa. He can do anything you ask him to, but if you put an electric bass in his hands, and ask him to get funky, you’ll have a hard time staying still! We’ll be playing some of his own compositions as well as music from the Jazz masters that entered the funk genre including Herbie Hancock, Jacoi Pastorius, and others. Also some funk arrangements of familiar jazz tunes. Featured alongside Dan Navarro will be James Suggs on trumpet and Zach Bornheimer on saxophone. I’m excited to get groovy with you all! See you there!
