Scott Sorkin Trio
September 14, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
I’m so excited about this new organ trio, where I’ll be collaborating with veteran first-call Bay Area players Eddie Mendenhall, and Jason Lewis. While the organ trio format is well established (guitar, Hammond B3, drums), this group is focussed on exploring harmonically inventive songs as vehicles for creating atmospheric and textural sonic landscapes. We’ll present original music alongside compositions by John Abercrombie, Wayne Shorter, Monk, Jaco Pastorius, and others.
Come on out, and enjoy some food, wine, and great live music, in a great local listening room.
2 sets- 7:30p, 9:00p
March 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
I’m excited to be playing my first solo show at Café Pinkhouse in Saratoga.
I’ll be playing jazz, standards, brazilian, and a few less well-known tunes.
I’d love to see you there.

…this San Francisco Bay Area ensemble, evokes vivid memories of Brazilian samba and bossa nova music before the Tropicalia Movement introduced rock music into the menu of the first wave of bossa singer/songwriters in the early 1970s.
