Who says we ain’t classy? We gone and got ourselves some fine gentlemen on the show this week: First Take, featuring Jimmy Vermillion, Bill Heise and the renowned sax-a-ma-phonist Rick Metz. (aaaand… now I’m being told he does play an actual saxophone and the Simpson’s want their 24-year-old-dead-horse back).

First Take is a premiere Northern Nevada jazz ensemble, appearing as the core trio with us this week. Lifelong musicians all, they have been entertaining audiences all over the Great Basin and beyond for about a decade. They all share a passion for connecting with other musicians onstage. Their experience and camaraderie comes out in their music. Tight and smooth, but not ‘smooth jazz’, if you know what we mean.
