In response to a wave of demand, The Tom Gershwin Quartet returns to the Nocturne stage to perform an encore series honoring the iconic jazz master Chet Baker. The series will run just four nights (Thursdays in February).
Tom’s professional career began in the United States Army Band, where he performed for 3 years across the Pacific Northwest and Japan. He was promoted to sergeant before receiving an honorable discharge. He received his jazz performance degrees from CU Boulder (undergraduate) and NYU (masters). Tom’s projects are all deeply dynamic and balance the framework of finely crafted compositions along with the art of free of expression through improvisation.
