THE Jazz Club


THE Jazz Club continues with the Jeff Denson Quartet, January 4

Cloverdale Arts Alliance presents THE Jazz Club first Thursdays, October to May

On Thursday, January 4, the Cloverdale Arts Alliance will present the Jeff Denson Quartet at THE Jazz Club.

Fully immersed in both the art of jazz expression and the world of formal education since the late 1990s, bassist/composer, Jeff Denson, has balanced a full career as sideman and leader while taking a full course of studies leading to his doctorate. In addition to maintaining an intense performing and touring schedule in the U.S. and Europe while in school – including a long relationship with legendary saxophonist Lee Konitz that continues to this day – Jeff has also taught extensively all over both continents.

Today Denson is a full professor at the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley and the Director of its Outreach Program designed to develop the Bay Area’s most talented musicians while making the local scene a productive and fertile environment for jazz. While this intensive level of activity is easily a full-time job, Jeff takes a relentless 24/7 approach, composing for and leading three distinct ensembles, participating in a few cooperative groups and working on his three-act Chamber Opera, WEBS.

The Jeff Denson Quartet features Denson on bass and vocals and has included such extraordinary trumpeters as Ralph Alessi and Cuong Vu.

Doors open at 7:00 PM and the show starts at 7:30.  To receive reserved seating privileges purchase advance tickets online at or at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance during normal business hours. Tickets are available at the door.

Other CAA programs include Friday Night Live at the Plaza, Art Gallery,  Americana Night, Music Workshops, Discovering Art Series, The Blues Session, Art Classes, Clay Classes, Wine Appreciation Workshops, and Special Events.
