For this concert he will lead an all-star quartet featuring the multi-talented Marlene on keyboard and vocals, and an elegant rhythm section comprised of Dave Clark on bass and Renato Malavasi on drums. They will play an eclectic mix of straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz, original compositions, and their take on some pop/rock tunes played in a jazzified way.
