The Bob Kerwin Quartet is Peter Weil – bass, Kevin Adler – drums, Phil Porembski – keys, and Bob Kerwin – saxophone. We perform once a month at Delaney’s Restaurant and periodically at other venues, social events, fundraisers, and corporate events. Our repertoire includes jazz standards, originals, bluesy hard-bop, and groove based jazz.
Here are a few samples taken from a performance at Sequoya Library. They have a great listening room and appreciative audiences.
“Beatrice” was written by Sam Rivers for his wife and appears on his 1964 debut release, “Fuchsia Swing Song.’ It has become a modern jazz standard, covered by many. This is our take.
Here we play a funky blues by Peter Bernstein called “Carrot Cake.” It is on his 1998 “Earth Tone” release.
This is “Playing in the Street,” a bebop type tune I finished writing in 2015. It went through multiple changes (and titles) until finally feeling complete. It has an exuberant quality that reminds me of my youth.
