The San Gabriel Seven are a tight instrumental ensemble, featuring horns and a killer rhythm section, with great arrangements - both original and clever new takes on familiar jazz standards. They are based in the Los Angeles area, but perform across the nation and regularly feature such greats as Bill Watrous, Nick Mancini and Eric Marienthal.
I have been associated with Jim Lewis and SGS for some time and find this group to be a very exciting, high energy experience with first class musicians. ... SGS is one of the best up and coming groups on the L.A. Jazz Scene. I expect great things from them in the future!
