This pianoless quartet includes Brian Nipper on tenor sax, Matthew Wang on trombone, Sophia Augustine on bass and Eli Strombom on drums. The Folsom High jazz program is directed by Curtis Gaesser, who was one of 25 semifinalists for the 2018 Grammy Foundation National Music Educator Award.

Along with a swinging rendition of  the bop standard “Stablemates” by Benny Golson, the quartet gives a rousing workout to George Gershwin’s iconic jazz vehicle “I Got Rhythm.”
