Northern California’s Bill Horvitz, Steve Adams and Paul Kikuchi create original jazz compositions through songwriting and improvisation.
Since 1974, Horvitz has led both large and small ensembles. Between 1978 and 1988, he lived and worked in New York City, where he explored and extended the sonic range of his guitar skills in a wide variety of settings
Driving swing, lyrical ballads and funky grooves are hallmarks of the band’s performances.
