Howard Wiley and Extra Nappy

Tenor saxophonist Howard Wiley has been a major force on the Bay Area music scene since his teenage years in the mid-90s. A protégé of the dynamic Miss Faye Carol, he’s steeped in a vast array of African-American idioms, from gospel, blues and jazz to R&B, funk and hip-hop. All of these currents flow into Extra Nappy, a loose and limber quartet that delivers improvisation-laced arrangements of classic songs.

About the Performers

Destiny Muhammad

The Destiny Muhammad JAZZ Trio~~~Following in the footsteps of jazz harp master Dorothy Ashby (who recorded with everyone from Freddie Hubbard and Frank Wess to Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder), the Destiny Muhammad Jazz Trio is a sleek and soulful ensemble designed to showcase Muhammad’s soaring vocals and transporting string work. Whether interpreting jazz standards or her original tunes, Muhammad turns every piece into a soulful adventure.

"When one contemplates the great musicians of Jazz a list of harpists do not immediately come to mind, but that is destined to change with Sound Sculptress, Destiny Muhammad."

Howard Wiley & Extra Nappy

 The native Bayview saxophonist has been a mainstay on the Bay Area music scene since he was a teenager, and at 39 he’s taken up the mantle of his mentors, playing soul-steeped jazz palpably connected to its roots as social music.

Impossible to pigeonhole, Wiley can generate blowtorch heat in just about any context, whether he’s interpreting Ethiojazz saxophone with Bay Area vocalist Meklit or laying down shuffle beats on drums as one of Lavay Smith’s Red Hot Skillet Lickers. As a bandleader, his primary vehicle is Extra Nappy, an all-star quartet featuring Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, bassist Michael “Tiny” Lindsey, and veteran organist L.J. Holoman.

With its repertoire of R&B covers and hard bop originals the group lives deep in the pocket, delivering an insistently celebratory sound built on an intoxicating array of carnal rhythms. Bars, block parties, night clubs, juke joints, art galleries and jazz festivals all provide fertile soil for the Extra Nappy treatment. (Andrew Gilbert)

Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers

Blues, R&B, Basie style arrangements and a vocalist that brings it all home....

Lavay grew up in Southern California and the Philippines and has become an internationally recognized Diva of Jazz and Blues, with a singing style influenced by Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Bessie Smith, Little Esther Phillips and other legendary greats. Whether singing her own compositions or drawing on a large repertoire of classics, Lavay and her all-star 7-piece band bake up an instant recipe for dancing and good times.

“Lavay is wonderful! She and her band are a breath of fresh air. It is so unlikely and so exciting that a band would appear on the scene today that plays classic jazz and blues so well and so convincingly.”
