Asheville Jazz Collective

The Asheville Jazz Collective was founded by drummer, and former Berklee College of Music professor, Alan Hall as an “open borders” stylistic vehicle for composing and performimg with like-minded peers. Originally he was joined by UNCA professors Bill Bares-piano, Steve Alford-woodwinds and New Orleans transplant Josef Butts-bass. Since then, we’ve added trombonists Caleb McMahon, Nick Garrison, vibist Jason DeCristofaro and woodwind player Will Boyd to our flexible front line. We cull our material from a wide range of jazz standards and original material.

Whether in trio, quartet or quintet format we strive for a varied, rich and surprising performance for ourselves and our audiences. We’ve recently completed a recording at Sound Temple Studio and will be releasing those tracks in video and audio format in Fall 2022.

The Core at Little Jumbo by Frank Zipperer

Press

“This Five Points neighborhood bar takes cocktail history seriously—it’s named after a New York bar once run by illustrious nineteenth-century barman Harry Johnson. The drinks menu recently was revamped after a pandemic-long season of sampling and testing. (Yes, that beats however you spend your pandemic.) There’s no better excuse to pull up a seat and see what’s new and delicious.”
“Little Jumbo was everything we could have wished for in a cocktail bar, and then some. Every cocktail has 5 ingredients or less to expedite the process, but don’t worry, the flavor is not compromised. We were totally impressed by the Manhattan service for Two, which was presented on a silver platter with necessary accompaniments- including a bowl of cherries!?”
“This warmly welcoming cocktail bar has a classic vibe and a focus on good, unpretentious service. Isn't that the way all bars should be?”
“Little Jumbo has a comfortable yet modern feel, lacks affectation and focuses on the drink and the experience.”
“As you sip your drink, you feel a cozy intimateness, yet there’s a buzz to the atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re a part of something bigger… a community, a neighborhood.”
“Simply put, Little Jumbo should be at the top of your list of places for cocktails in Asheville. The drinks and service are both top-notch, and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a relaxed speakeasy, without a trace of the pretention that can sometimes be found in such places.”
