Members of the band are Tom Kendall on guitar, Pat Driscoll on guitar and vocals, Mark Baumgarten on drums, Stan Cossette on keyboard and vocals, and Dan Tiscareno on bass and vocals. Three of the band mates go back a quarter of a century. “Tom, Pat and I go back 25 years,” said keyboardist Stan Cossette. “We all like rock ‘n’ roll and have played together in different bands. So we got together in the garage and played music that we liked and fiddled around. We all had young families at the time. Dan and Mark joined later, and they have history playing together in another band.”.

Pianist Ethan Iverson, late of The Bad Plus, makes a point of looking up the San Diego-based saxophonist for a lesson when he’s in the Southland. A few years ago he posted a fascinating discussion about time with McPherson on his popular blog Do the Math, a topic that came up in a recent phone conversation. “When it comes to music I think of time as a point of reference, but it’s something you can play with,” said McPherson, 79, who performs at Café Stritch Feb. 27 as part of San Jose Jazz’s Winter Fest. “You can ride with it, or play against it and use it as a counterpoint. What are you thinking when you’re committing to the beat? What are you thinking between the beats when you’re not committing. What is the emotion in that space? Are you just waiting? I think that space influences the next beat.”.
