The series concludes on February 21 with the return of Road Work Ahead, a collective band co-led by pianist Bill Mays, guitarist Peter Sprague, bassist Bob Magnusson, and drummer Jim Plank. The band stretches back to the 1980s when all four players were based in San Diego. Their last Athenaeum performance was in 2003, and they are currently reuniting to celebrate the issue of their latest new CD. A former San Diegan now based in New York, Bill Mays was called by JazzTimes “one of the masters of color and touch among today’s pianists.” Mays’ career has included work with Bud Shank, Sarah Vaughan, Shelly Manne, Gerry Mulligan, Clark Terry, Benny Golson, Bobby Shew, and the Mel Lewis Orchestra. Guitarist Peter Sprague—a San Diego institution—has been the leader of groups including Blurring the Edges and BrazilJazz, and is known internationally for his work with Dianne Reeves, Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, and David Benoit. Bassist Bob Magnusson has been featured on hundreds of recordings, and has worked with Sarah Vaughan, Bud Shank, Laurindo Almeida, Benny Golson, Shorty Rogers, and Art Pepper, among countless others. Drummer Jim Plank, well-known as percussionist for the San Diego Symphony, is equally adept in the world of jazz, having recorded with artists such as Laurindo Almeida and Mike Wofford.
