Pictured here is the JAZZinc. quartet with tenor saxaphonist Scott Petersen, although originally from the Detroit area Scott has become one of the Bay Area's hottest sax players. The picture is a few years old but Scott is still available to compliment the JAZZinc quartet with his masterful ability to play straight-ahead jazz as well as any other form of jazz on the planet.
