THE DAVE ELLIS QUINTET AT FILOLI JAZZ IN CALIFORNIA
The Bay Area shares a top talent with JazzSet. His CD State of Mind won Outstanding Jazz Album in the 2004 California Music Awards. Ellis also won the 2003 San Francisco Weekly Music Awards for Best Jazz Artist. Dave Ellis's music is "a superb example of today's small jazz combo," says Bud Spangler, producer of the Filoli Jazz series.
