Simon Mastri Ensemble @ BOP STOP

July 26 from 8:00pm - 10:30pm

Simon Mastri Ensemble @ BOP STOP

Simon Mastri is an unconventional jazz bassist. Influenced by Bach to Stan Getz, and Fela Kuti to Johnny Cash, Mastri fuses various musical genres to create a unique sound. Although classically trained by the principle bass player for the Cleveland Orchestra, Simon gained an interest in jazz while attending The Music Settlement. He created his own combo and began gigging in Cleveland at venues including Nighttown. Simon is a former student of The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, under direction of such teachers as Reggie Workman and Bobby Sanabria. After The New School, Simon has remained living in New York, and currently studies with Buster Williams.

Recently, Simon returned from a month long European tour with the Mastri/Le Cointre Duo. While touring, the duo recorded an album which will be released soon!

We are excited to welcome home one of Cleveland's own!

The band will also include:

  • Yesseh Furaha-Ali, tenor
  • Lorin Xavier Rivers, piano
  • Paul Samuels, drums
  • Simon Mastri, bass
