JAZZ@theEDGE Festival! Mike Olmos is one of the Bay Area’s most in-demand trumpet players. A versatile musician, he has performed and/or recorded with Etta James, Michael Bublé, Rosemary Clooney, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Marcus Shelby, The New Mastersounds, Pete Escovedo, Willie Jones III, Lavay Smith, Cachao, Lyrics Born, Blackalicious, Ray Obiedo, and many more. For more than a decade Mike has helped preserve the local jazz community by hosting one of San Francisco’s best weekly jam sessions, attracting local and touring musicians. The OLMOS Quintet will be performing repertoire from the straight ahead bebop, hard bop as well as the Great American Songbook.
Widely hailed as one of the best jazz debut albums of 2015, Tiffany Austin’s “Nothing But Soul” made quite a splash including sterling reviews in Downbeat and on NPR’s “Fresh Air.” Tiffany’s eagerly awaited follow-up “Unbroken” — receiving rave reviews from All About Jazz and reaching #16 on the Jazz Week Chart — confirms the Bay Area vocalist’s status as one of jazz’s elite singers and songwriters. Tiffany’s vocal style combines classic jazz tradition with a deep love for blues, spirituals, and contemporary soul. Tiffany has performed with jazz luminaries (Cyrus Chestnut, Roy Ayers, John Handy and others), and continues to appear at top jazz venues (including Birdland NYC, Dizzy’s NYC and many others).
