More than a decade ago, one of the most powerful hard-bop bands ever to form on the west coast played every Tuesday night at the Onyx Room in the Gaslamp District of Downtown San Diego. Under the leadership of San Diego trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos, this band specialized in paying homage to the jazz giants of the past while stretching the limits of hard-bop through original compositions. Saxophonist Tom Catanzaro took over the weekly jam session at Steamers Jazz Club in Fullerton while Kevin Kanner started a jam session at The Mint in LA, which continues to this day. Gilbert also continues to run a Wednesday night jam session at Panama 66 in San Diego. After all these years, the core of this historic San Diego band is reuniting for one night to bring the excitement to the beautiful performance hall of Cuyamaca College.
