Original show description below.

An artist who “has carved out a distinctive niche on the San Francisco Bay Area jazz scene” (JazzTimes), saxophonist Michael O’Neill has established a career built on a masterful command of the instrument and an impressive versatility as a composer – freely working within jazz, orchestral, and film score settings.

The former student of Joe Henderson has amassed a considerable resume as a sideman, logging hours on the bandstand with the likes of Idris Muhammad, Joe Locke, Michael Wolff, Eddie Fisher, and Kim Nalley, and has led what is arguably the most durable and beloved working quintet in the area for nearly 20 years. O’Neill’s quintet has achieved a seamless and powerful telepathy that is clear to hear on their new Jazzmo Records release Pacific Standard Time — a sparking collection of fresh takes on the standards songbook recorded in collaboration with vocalist Tony Lindsay, who joins O’Neill’s quintet for this performance.

Best known for his twenty-five year stint as lead vocalist with Santana, Lindsay appeared on seven of their albums including the multi-platinum Supernatural, winning 11 GRAMMY awards. He has worked with Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Boz Skaggs, Al Jarreau, and Lou Rawls among others, but always had a strong connection to jazz, performing around the Bay Area for decades with a passion for the Great American Songbook.
