UPCOMING JAZZ & MORE CONCERTS

Backburner Reunion on August 23rd at Rialto

BACKBURNER is a Bozeman, Montana-based poly-stylistic jazz quartet that has worked together for almost 20 years. During that time they recorded five CDs, all favorably reviewed by the, prestigious international jazz music magazine “Le Jazz Hot” [Paris]. The group was featured on season 1 of the 9-time Emmy Award winning Montana PBS-TV program “11th & Grant with Eric Funk” and is partly responsible for the creation of that series due to the powerful public response to the PBS Christmas Special “A Jazz Peace” in 2004. The group features Alan Fauque, saxophones, Eric Funk, piano, Eddie Tsuru, bass, and Mike Gillan, drums.
