The music you're hearing is by The Tommy Igoe Big Band. Igoe says he began drumming at the age of two, something many of us can probably claim. But no one else but Igoe can claim creating the drumming cues for "The Lion King" on Broadway. Currently, Igoe plays, and teaches, in and around San Francisco.
The Tommy Igoe Big Band appears at Yoshi’s in San Francisco tomorrow, Jaunary 7th, performing the works of Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Thelonious Monk. Music starts at 8:00pm.
