Oklahoma-born organist Chester Thompson started playing at the age of five and has gone on to lead a career including a lengthy stint with Tower of Power, seventeen years with Santana and co-writing credits with both bands. His contributions have always proved integral to the groups he’s shared the stage with and he now brings his trademark sound to the stage with his own group. His quartet interacts with a paramount devotion to improvising in the moment and provides a return to Thompson’s jazz roots. Joining Thompson in the quartet are guitarist Drew Zingg, tenor saxophonist Howard Wiley, and drummer Darrell Green.
