Annual line-up changes keep the Bay Area’s most high-vis repertory ensemble fresh, and the fact that they pepper their tributes with wily and gorgeous original pieces clears out any possible dustballs. But what’s always killed me is the chemistry they bring to their live shows. The charts are ultra-tight, and whether its Stevie Wonder, Horace Silver, or Wayne Shorter they’re saluting, the spirit is obvious. Bet they have a blast with Chick.
