TBD-A QUARTET: Keeping Jazz Alive in North Beach

This first Friday October 5th, please join us for a very special jazz evening, featuring Mario Guarneri and his new ensamble tbd-a quartet.

Trumpeter Mario Guarneri brings to his performances a fresh creative voice, amazing technical ease, and an intense desire to touch people with his music. His career has encompassed everything from playing with Louis Armstrong at the age of 13 to fifteen seasons with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Guarneri has recorded solo albums on the Crystal and Nonesuch labels, played principal trumpet with the LA Chamber Orchestra for ten seasons, and appeared on over 300 TV and motion picture soundtracks, most notably as soloist on Godfather III.

Since his return to the Bay Area, where he was born and raised, Mario has concentrated his energies on the Guarneri Jazz Quartet. He teaches trumpet and improvisation at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He is the inventor of the BERP, a learning tool for brass instruments which is sold all over the world (BERP.com). He has performed over the years with a diverse list of creative musicians including Earl “Fatha” Hines, Frank Zappa, Sarah Vaughn, Cleo Lane, and Roger Kellaway.

This first Friday, Mario and tbd-a quartet, his new quartet, will perform live jazz at The Emerald Tablet. tbd-a quartet, featuring two trumpets, bass and drums, play their music in a linear way, creating implied harmonies, and stretching traditional forms.
