Andy Weis Presents the Monterey All-Stars

About the Monterey All-Star Show

I got a call from Andy Weis six months before the Festival, asking me if I would like to be part of a Monterey artist gathering for the 50th Monterey Jazz Festival. Of course I agreed, and the next few months became a convoluted mix of managing, arranging, grouping and re-grouping so everybody had a decent amount of stage presence. Rehearsals at CSUMB were a joyous reunion of some of Monterey’s finest musicians and vocalists, culminating in the show yo can see here.

Much work went into this presentation, both in the productiona nd preformance as well as the creation of the videos. I hope you enjoy these moments half as much as we enjoyed creating them.
