Christian Conti Collective
Christian Conti and his quintet will play original compositions. Conti, a 20-year-old trumpeter, mixes jazz, Latin, hip hop, rock, funk, and other genres. He has studied for the past two years at Berklee College of Music with Darren Barrett, Tiger Okoshi, Charlie Lewis, Tia Fuller, and others, and has played a steady gig at the famous Wally's Jazz Café since April 2013. This program features a variety of tunes in different styles and idioms, from songs written in Conti's first semester at Berklee to others written lately. His band performs Wednesday nights at Wally's.
