Adrian Cunningham and Friends

Adrian Cunningham, a New York based musician originally hailing from Australia, is one of his home country’s best jazz exports. With fluent command of the saxophones, clarinet, and flute, he is one of the finest multi-instrumentalists in jazz today. He has performed at some of the finest clubs in NYC, with such luminaries as Lew Soloff, Wycliffe Gordon, George Coleman Jr, Bucky Pizzarelli, and more.

Cunningham will be joined by Daniel Foose (bass), Ehud Asherie (piano) and in the rhythm section, Rob Garcia (drums). Promises to be a great evening! “Possibly the only young saxophonist with a sound reminiscent of Eddie Miller.” -The Wall St Journal
