Amanda Tosoff tosses off a jazz groove with her group

A good sized crowd turned up at the Slice, Sept. 29 for  the Amanda Tosoff Quartet.

I arrived at the tail end of the show in the middle of one of several saxophone solos.


Tosoff supplied plenty of subdued organ playing, letting her stand-up bassist, drummer and of course saxophonist shine on solos throughout her set of instrumental jazz.

The audience included an eclectic mix of  the local jazz scene as well as a few of the more metal minded individuals, all of whom were digging the groove.


The bassist was superb, providing a slinky groove.

All of them were excellent musicians, so Tosoff was content to let them shine while she supplied the musical foundation for them to build upon.
