Coyote to Walt Disney and Tex Avery—have provoked laughter in audiences of all ages with their ridiculous antics for decades. Close your eyes, however, and you’ll notice just how much the music adds to your enjoyment of these mini-masterpieces. Jeff Sanford and his Cartoon Jazz Septet bring new life to the big band sounds that accompanied the animation of the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s. In addition, they perform an ever-expanding set of new arrangements of jazz greats and original commissions. Join them for a concert featuring the music of Lenny Carlson, Raymond Scott, Jelly Roll Morton, Charlie Shavers & John Kirby, and others on Sunday, November 8. Cartoon Jazz Septet & Orchestra has delighted audiences at venues throughout the Bay Area and recorded multiple albums, including Cartoon Logic and More Cartoon Logic.
