Sacha Boutros Trio - Thursday, June 30th
Sacha Boutros performed at Jazz Live San Diego in 2014 and here's a taste of what you'll hear Poolside...
Saxophonist, bandleader, composer Robert Dove is one of the newer "young lions" to make San Diego his home, settling here in large part due to the thriving Jazz scene in America's Finest City. He explained as much in a fantastic 2014 San Diego Magazine article by Dave Good describing the hot San Diego Jazz scene and a life changing night when Dove played with Gilbert Castellanos on a visit to San Diego: "Dressed in a suit and tie, Dove explains why he chose San Diego over a more traditional jazz launch pad like the Big Apple. He says that nothing he ever experienced in New York even came close to the fire coming off the bandstand on that fateful night in North Park."
"Trio Gadjo is really just three good friends who have been around and share the same passion for music. They enjoy making a quality sound and sharing it with whomever is willing to listen, much like their fellow Gypsy musicians of the past just playing a sound they enjoy. "
