    Jazz Mandala was conceived by founding members George De Filippo (Alto Sax – Flute) and Marilyn Avenali (Piano) in March 2013 in Santa Barbara. Influenced by Jazz artists including Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans, Jazz Mandala began exploring a spectrum of Jazz idioms including Swing; Bebop, Modal, Fusion, and Latin. Our current incarnation includes the extraordinary Brian Fox on bass and the dynamic Daryell Perkins on drums. This powerhouse rhythm section has infused our sound with a percussive energy and adventure that is palpable. Special Guest: Jeff Elliott
