Clint Baker

Aug 12, Saturday - 6pm
Forager Stage

Multi-instrumentalist Clint Baker has long been a notable member of the Northern California jazz community. Since forming his New Orleans Jazz Band in 1990, both he and his band continue to bring traditional jazz to audiences nationwide.

Clint Baker’s New Orleans Jazz Band performed at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival in 1999, one of the few traditional jazz bands ever to play there, joining the ranks of Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden. The band now tours festivals in the US and Canada extensively, and was voted one of the top five Favorite New (Emerging) Jazz Bands in the Mississippi Rag Trad Jazz and Ragtime Poll.

Whether appearing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or performing by special invitation from legendary trombonist Frank Demond alongside Willie and Percy Humphrey, Baker continues to spread awareness about the sound of traditional jazz.
