Who We Are
We’re a Bay Area-based band of long-time musical compatriots. We formed this group with the idea playing original music that nourishes both mind and heart; melodic modern jazz to be enjoyed by everyone, whether you’re an experienced jazz listener or you’re hearing jazz for the first time. This web site and the email list is the best way to keep on top of all things FivePlay.
New videos! Check out our brand-new videos of FivePlay with strings from our November 2012 concert at Piedmont Piano. The InStep String Quartet sounds wonderful, and the band is in fine form!
Third CD coming in 2013! This one will have added guests, including the Albatross Clarinet Quartet, a brass extravaganza, Ted Wolff on vibes, and Frank Phipps on trombone. Sign our email list and we’ll keep you posted about the CD release.
