The Allan Crossley Jazz Quartet delivers fun jazz standards along with originals from the dynamic duo, Crawford & Crossley. This quartet consists of Larry Crawford, Yanti, Stefan Bienz and Allan Crossley. Larry Crawford plays saxophones, flutes, and clarinet when he is not writing music. He spent 25 years as a featured soloist in armed forces bands and has extensive radio, television and studio experience. His musical presence has come to be known as a special treat for the South Okanagan for decades. Yanti’s vocals are to be heard almost everywhere in and around Penticton. Whether or not you’ve heard her, you’re in for a great evening as she delivers on ballads and up tunes with lightning-fast lyrics. Stefan Bienz and bass have performed with many, many beloved local groups and is often invited to the Dream Cafe stage. He is known for his solid rhythms and playful solos. Allan Crossley, piano player, arranger and leader, spent his career as a music educator, leading an award-winning high school jazz program. He’s delighted to be retired and finally have time to make his own music as well as collaborating his own lyrics with Larry’s melodies. “Who wouldn’t be pumped to be able to use words like ‘controvertible’ in a swing tune?”
