Jay Thomas - saxophone and trumpet; John Hansen - piano; Paul Gabrielson - bass; Adam Kessler - drums
Seattle jazz icon Jay Thomas is a versatile multi-instrumentalist (trumpet, flugelhorn, alto, tenor, soprano and flutes) whose music leans to earthy and lyrical; the blues and swing always in evidence. With the Cantaloupes, Jay goes back to the sixties and the neo-boogaloo / hard bop feel of Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Cannonball Adderly, & Ramsay Lewis. The band connects with people on a visceral level and encourages people to MOVE.
The Ballard Jazz Festival now has 501(c)(3) Non-Profit status as an associated program of Shunpike.
