Very professional jazz group led by sax/flute player with guitar, bass and optional drums (depending on acoustics and budget). We play at many local restaurants and bars and also for private parties.
We can play hundreds of songs from the Great American Songbook.
My website has some music audio and video.
I enjoyed working with Alan Early and the rest of his quartet. They made my parents party special. They were professional, friendly, affordably and talented. I can't say enough good things. If you need a jazz band - they are fantastic!

Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
We are a sophisticated and very professional band - we will not play loud but will provide a perfect atmosphere for you cocktail party or some swinging dance music for your wedding or other social event. Just picture some mellow sax and flute playing along with some very melodic guitar and bass and you will get the idea!
Alan has played music all his life, and was fully professional for 10 years. During this period, Alan toured the world and played in night clubs, stage and pit bands, and for countless recording sessions.
Alan has backed many famous artists, including Petula Clark and Jose Feliciano, and played with such jazz greats as Herb Ellis, Jimmy Smith, Blue Mitchell and Astrud Gilberto.
Since settling in Northern California some time ago, Alan has been busy playing with a variety of combos large and small, including his own quartet, several big bands and orchestras (including Full Spectrum, Swing Solution, Joe Ferrari, Generation Gap and Bill Travis), and backing a variety of vocalists.
Alan now lives in Sonoma, and is very active with his own group and other large and small groups in the area.
Additional Booking Notes
We don't use a PA - just need outlets for bass and guitar amps.

Influences & Inspiration
Stan Getz and other great sax players influence my own playing, and the group is a kind of throwback to great lounge bands of the 50's.
