Jazz Beat: Matt Carrillo Quartet, at Take Five Coffee + Bar



Matt Carrillo started sitting in on Kansas City–area jazz jams while still in his teens. His rich, full-bodied tenor sax evoked the bluesy sounds of this city's heritage, and he'd swing with sophistication as his solos grew more adventurous. He matured as a regular in Everette DeVan's quartet. Then, three years ago, Carrillo moved to New York, which makes a one-night-only return to his hometown quite special. Saturday at Take Five, Carrillo is joined by Eddie Moore on keyboards, Micah Herman on bass and Brad Williams on drums. Carrillo's sound may have grown from KC traditions, but it'll be channeled this night through a group of young KC jazz masters.
