About Sasha Berliner and Jaz Sawyer

“Mr. Sawyer derives maximum melody from percussion.” —The New York Times

“[Berliner is a] young mallet master.” —JazzTimes Magazine

The late jazz artists, vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson and drummer Eddie Marshall, were titans of jazz internationally, and they were the heart and soul of their native Bay Area jazz scene. They taught and performed together regularly at SJW where they influenced countless SJW students, as well as delighting their Stanford Jazz Festival audiences.

Drummer Dr. Jaz Sawyer, a former camper, and Oakland native and rising star vibraphonist Sasha Berliner are musicians who were deeply influenced by these masters. This show both honors the affinity and creativity of Bobby and Eddie, and showcases the immense talents of these two young artists, each of whom now have a huge impact of their own.
