We Always Swing Jazz Series

March 17 @ 2:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$20 – $50

Marty and Jay Ashby Quartet

Sundays @ Murry’s — Two shows 3:30 pm & 7:00pm. Doors open 1 hour prior to curtain.

There are a number of U.S. cities that have remarkable jazz lineages: New York, Chicago and Los Angeles and, for that matter, the two that sit on either end of the Show-Me State. Then there’s Pittsburgh; no longer the Steel City it once was, it’s always had a tremendous jazz scene. The Jazz Series has always tried to attract greatness; sometimes, where and how it arrives surprises even us. This is one of those instances as we present a sibling co-led quartet featuring four seasoned musicians that call Pittsburgh home. Guitarist MARTY ASHBY and brother JAY ASHBY, a trombonist, are multi-taskers; both instrumentally talented, they are educators, producers, arts administrators, GRAMMY® winners and much more. The other two members here are in-demand bassist Dwayne Dolphin who, as a leader/co-leader has released some 10 titles, but who also has worked with John Hicks, Arthur Blythe, Stanley Turrentine, Geri Allen among many others. Drummer Roger Humphries drumming intersects with Horace Silver, Nancy Wilson, Joe Henderson, George Benson and a host of other luminaries.
