“Tommy has been so great about giving credit to the musicians doing arrangements and putting in all that extra time,” says East Bay trombonist/arranger Jeanne Geiger, a founding member of Igoe’s Bay Area band. “He puts a lot of trust in us. We have to write something that not only sounds good but has to come in legible, clean and have all the info you need to sight-read it down onstage.”. Some of the band’s best charts can be found on last year’s eponymous “The Tommy Igoe Groove Conspiracy,” which seems designed to showcase the band’s versatility. Igoe gets bored quickly, and every track stakes out different rhythmic territory, from funk and R&B to Cuban and Brazilian grooves. Trombonist John Gove’s arrangement of Joshua Redman’s tune “Jazz Crimes,” a tune from a time when the saxophone star was veering away from straight-ahead jazz syncopation, sounds like a forgotten track from Steely Dan’s “Aja.”.

On Wednesday, author Tom Zaniello will have a discussion and book signing in San Jose for his new book, “California’s Lamson Murder Mystery: The Depression Era Case That Divided Santa Clara County.” At its center is David Lamson, a Stanford executive who found his wife, Allene, dead in their Palo Alto home on Memorial Day 1933. After a judge sentenced him to hang at San Quentin prison, a team of Stanford colleagues stepped in to form a defense committee — a group that included poets Yvor Winters and Janet Lewis, as well as Berkeley criminologist E.O. Heinrich. The group managed to overturn the verdict and bring on a series of heated retrials.
Speaking of the tiny one and his father, Scrooge’s earnest, hard-working bookkeeper Bob Cratchit (played here by earnest, hard-working James Ambler), it’s one of Act 1’s highlights when Tiny Tim (cherubic Noah Itzkovitz) and his dad sing a sweet duet, “You Mean More to Me” with Bob hoisting Tiny up onto his shoulders, (It did look as if Ambler was grimacing somewhat, trying to keep him steady up there, while smiling cheerily and singing out.), Several other actors offer up outstanding performances, but none more so that the energetic, sparkling Sammi Hildebrand who brings a whole new dimension to the role of the Ghost of Christmas Past, Clad in a flashy showgirl costume with a long wig of curly red ringlets, Hildebrand commands the stage with her bold ballerina ballet shoes printed fabric by the half yard movements, vivacious smile and strong vocals, And then there’s her book — but that’s a special effect that must be seen to be appreciated..
