MJS Presents Cornet Chop Suey

September 18, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

As MJS begins presentation of its final six concerts, we will present Cornet Chop Suey from St. Louis, which has enjoyed a rapid rise and long tenure since 2001 when they performed for the first time at the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee. The six piece band plays traditional jazz to bop, as well as pop tunes. The band is named after an obscure Louis Armstrong composition. They are best known for a wide variety of styles. This well-traveled band has toured across the country playing at various festivals including our Capital City Jazz Fest, and performances in Europe, South America, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and Germany, among others.  The band’s front line with Brian Casserly on trumpet, Jerry Epperson on reeds and Brett Stamps on trombone is driven by a powerful rhythm section consisting of Rick Zelle on piano, Jay Hungerford on bass and John Gillick on drums.
