In National Campaign for: Tangria Jazz - Mebane's Eleven
Drummer, Sheryl Mebane, a San Francisco artist draws from her inner spirit and the sights, sounds and experiences of a seasoned composer and performer. As the leader of Tangria Jazz, Mebane is invigorating the jazz scene with her blend of multifarious and harmonically rich blend of instrumental jazz.
The ensemble is proud to release their sophomore effort entitled, Mebane's Eleven. Within this embodiment of works, each player brings an individual style to the group, always keeping Tangria's sound interesting and dynamic. Their influences range from Ellington to Jobim, from Miles Davis to Joe Henderson. Simon Rochester on Rhodes piano draws upon the intricate and lush contributions left by Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans; the intensity, explosiveness and melodic treatments of Tony Williams and Joe Morello are apparent in drummer Sheryl Mebane's playing; and the melodic and soulful contributions of bass players Dave Holland and Charlie Haden are brought forth in Justin Hellman's playing. Honoring their influences, Tangria's fresh, inventive expression reveals a unique identity, especially in their original compositions.
Join Tangria Jazz Trio for a night intimate but compelling improvisation at their weekly performance at the Vignette Restaurant, not just a restaurant but also an elegant and graceful dining room with white linen service that makes for an intimate dining experience. Vignette also has a fully glassed-in private wine room. A perfect way to kick off your Father's Day celebration and as a special note, it will be Mebane's birthday, so come on out a join in the celebration.
