Noel Jewkes is one of the premier saxophone players in Northern California. He has worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 35 years, and has earned a distinguished reputation with lovers of Jazz.
Listening to the majestic phrasing and harmonic adventurousness of Noel Jewkes is almost like hearing the entire history of modern jazz in a single evening. No wonder he is revered by musicians, critics, and music lovers alike as the premiere Saxist-by-the-Bay. Some years back, Phil Elwood, the legendary jazz critic, said of Noel, “I don’t know of a better contemporary modern saxman anywhere.”
Kay Kostopoulos is not only one of Northern California’s finest singers, she is also a great friend of Noel’s, and their on-stage partnership exudes a rare chemistry and musical rapport.
