The Red Dragon Quintet is a collaboration of trumpeter John Worley and saxophonist Oscar Pangilinan, the founders and leaders of the wildly popular Jazz Jam at the Hedley, held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Hotel De Anza. The ensemble features frequent Jazz Jam house band players Wally Schnalle, Ken Okada, and Murray Low. Joining the Quintet are special guests Amy Dabalos (a huge hit from this year’s Winter Fest Club Crawl), Randy Merrill, and Giuseppe Pinto. The unique group is infused with the energetic spirit and youthful vitality of the Hedley Jazz Jam, where varied artists come together to explore new ideas and encourage awareness and growth of America’s unique art form – jazz.
