The MSQuintet is led by saxophonist Mary-Sue Tobin (The Quadraphonnes, PJCE, Rebirth of the Cool and others), an esteemed member of the Portland jazz community. Active in many musical projects as a performer and band-leader, Mary-Sue is excited to introduce the latest version of the MSQuintet, featuring some of the original members as well as a couple of new additions. The MSQuintent, in its current form, will perform both original arrangements as well as standards in the style of Benny Golson, Cannoball Adderly, Dexter Gordon and other Hard Bop greats.
The new MSQuintet line up includes former members Bill Athens on bass (Trio Subtonic, Mary Kadderly, Ben Darwish, Shirley Nanette and others) as well as drummer and PJCE recording artist Ken Ollis . Tenor giant Pete Petersen (Rebirth of the Cool, Chris Baum Project and others) is a new addition as is up-and-coming jazz piano superstar, David Kim. This all-star line up creates an intoxicating musical cocktail that will quench the thirst of Portland’s jazz aficionados.
