    Comprised of pianist/songwriter Richard Glaser, drummer Mark San Filippo and bassist Geoff Rakness, our Tuesday night resident band performs a fine blend of straight-ahead jazz, intimate ballads, fresh improvisations and swelling, blues-tinged arrangements crafted by music virtuoso and front man Richard Glaser. Joined by legendary tenor man Clarence Webb and guest vocalists weekly, the band has added a lyrical component to its singular approach to jazz that is creating instant song classics out of finely tuned compositions. Gina Saputo, A native of Springfield, Oregon, Gina began training classically at the age of 8, singing with the Oregon Children’s Choir. By the age of 16 she was putting together her own groups and singing in jazz clubs, often waiting outside during breaks because she was underage. From there, Gina attended USC’s prestigious Thornton School of Music and was awarded the Barry Manilow Scholarship for all four years of her education. Gina studied at Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Aspen, Colorado under Christian McBride and Russell Malone. She was interviewed by Dee Dee Bridgewater for her show JazzSet on National Public Radio. Gina was among seven musicians chosen by Herbie Hancock, Terence Blanchard, Thelonious Monk Jr. and Wayne Shorter to study at the Thelonius Monk Institute. During her time with the institute, she performed for the State Department in Washington, D.C. and toured Viet Nam with Herbie Hancock and Nnenna Freelon. Her first CD, “Gina Saputo” was recorded with vocal sessions produced by Grammy award nominated vocalist Tierney Sutton , who said, “Gina has the talent as well as the passion to stretch and think outside the box.” After two successful tours of Japan, her CD has climbed to #3 on the prestigious Swing Journal charts, and has received rave reviews. She was a guest professor at Gwangju University in South Korea, 2008 and toured Japan a second time with Grammy nominated pianist Bill Cunliffe. In 2009, she appeared at the Skywards Dubai International Jazz Festival. She won First Place at the Big Stage Vocal Competition and was the vocalist for the Orange County Music Awards winning band for Best Jazz in Orange County. She recently recorded two ringtones which will be default rings on upcoming Samsung phones, and headlined Club Nokia at LA Live.
