Clarence Penn

Clarence Penn & Penn Station

Chad Leftkowitz-Brown - saxophone
Geoffrey Keezer - piano
Yasushi Nakamura - bass
Clarence Penn - drums

Since his arrival in New York City in 1991, drummer / composer / arranger Clarence Penn has placed his unique blend of mega-chops, keen intellect, and heady musicianship at the service of a staggering array of A-list artists, all documented on several hundred studio albums.

For his performance at the Ballard Jazz Festival Penn leads his dynamic quartet through thoroughly fresh and modern renditions of classic Thelonious Monk staples. Filled with the spirit and joy associated with Monk, he's taken all the things he loves in the music and brought them into the present.

Oskar Stenmark Quartet
in my ancestor’s footsteps

presented in partnership with the Nordic Museum

Oskar Stenmark - flugelhorn
Alex Pryrodny - piano
Kaisa Mäensivu - bass
Max Holmberg - drums

Oskar Stenmark Quartet plays traditional melodies from Sweden, inherited from Oskar’s ancestors mixed with New York jazz. The lyrical melodies will give you a Nordic flavor - but the rhythm, harmony and feel can only be found in New York City. Stenmark is the tenth generation in his family to play music and has performed with stars such as Chris Potter, Dave Liebman and multiple Grammy award winner Maria Schneider. This is the first time Oskar Stenmark Quartet performs on the west coast as part of a tour that stretches from Seattle to Los Angeles.
