White, Robaire, Templeton, Dessen

Although I said I would not go back here unless I had to, I had to this night as Michael Dessen was performing with Josh. I am glad I went. The acoustics didn’t seem so bad this time and people actually listened rather than talking all the time. It was a really good group and I learned about Gavin Templeton, saxophonist. I love his bio on his website; very clever: http://www.gavintempleton.com/html/about.php. He plays one mean sax. and does not look like he would - nice surprise and I will sure watch for him again. Joshua has taken San Diego by storm and that’s good news. He brings in a crowd for jazz, rare these days. And, the audience is not all older white people; also good news. The other fine performers were Dave Robaire, bass and Dan Schnelle, drums.
