Big Papi Trio
A jazz trio borne amid the bustle of parenthood, Big Papi’s musicians share a common bond: Each has their kid(s) enrolled at San Francisco’s Notre Dame des Victoires, a small K-8 school located at the edge of the Financial District and Chinatown. The threesome discovered a shared love of music during class camping trips and while providing accompaniment to school musicals. BPT enjoys jamming across a range of jazz standards and has been known to dabble in R&B and Motown.
Saxophonist Hermann Lara has been playing bars, dance clubs, street corners, bar mitzvahs, festivals, weddings, funerals and musicals in SF for close to three decades. As the trio’s jazz sage, Hermann focuses on pushing the group’s swing dynamic to the forefront. His tenor sax’s big rusty tone enhances the non-repetitive and weaving lines he aims to create.
Pianist Ben Elgin played piano and keyboards throughout his teenhood in various rock and jazz groups, as well as at an every-Tuesday-night gig playing solo piano at the local Holiday Inn bar. After a lengthy hiatus from piano in his adult years, Ben rediscovered his zeal for the ivories after getting his hands on a set of Billy Joel and Elton John anthologies. But more importantly, he has managed to keep his Real Book (very much weathered and worn from his early days) as well as a steady pulse on jazz.
Bassist Gerald Villegas is a self-described “musical tumbleweed”, a multiinstrumentalist with a chronic inability to focus on one musical instrument or genre. While he draws his inspiration from many sources, the
current winds have taken him to the jazz double bass, with which he lays down the low-end foundation for BPT’s swing and groove.
