Trading Fours at Tipple’s.
Jam session hosted by Steve Lugerner
Steven Lugerner is a multi-instrumentalist and composer based in San Francisco. As a bandleader, Lugerner leads both SLUGish Ensemble, an amoeba-like ensemble dedicated to original compositions & arrangements in addition to JACKNIFE, a hard-hitting post-bop quintet dedicated to the music of late alto saxophonist Jackie McLean. Since 2010, Lugerner has released twelve albums to critical acclaim. The New York Times calls him “an impeccably trained multi- reedist.” The San Francisco Examiner has praised: “Lugerner’s approach to making music is very much his own.”
In a relatively short period of time, the 35-year-old Bay Area native has collaborated with a heavyweight roster of jazz masters including, legend pianist Fred Hersch, Grammy award winning pianist Taylor Eigsti, vocalist Lisa Fischer, pioneering pianist Myra Melford; drum legends Albert Tootie Heath, Eric Harland, Matt Wilson, John Hollenbeck and Allison Miller; saxophonists Jane Ira Bloom, Dayna Stephens and Anat Cohen; trumpeter Ralph Alessi, flutist Jamie Baum and bassist Todd Sickafoose.
Steven is the Director of Educational & Festival Programming at the Stanford Jazz Workshop. He is also the founder of Slow & Steady Records, a non-profit record label dedicated to showcasing west coast creative artists.
A lively jam session featuring some the Bay Area’s (and beyond) premiere players.
