Bill Cunliffe

Bill Cunliffe is a triple threat: a superb musician, an accomplished composer/arranger and a first-rate music educator. He won a Grammy for his arrangement of West Side Story Medley from the CD Resonance Big Bands Tribute To Oscar Peterson, and is currently the associate professor of music at California State University Fullerton. Oscar Peterson was notably Cunliffe’s inspiration for diving into the world of jazz. Cunliffe has worked with the likes of The Buddy Rich Big Band, Frank Sinatra, Ray Brown, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Benny Golson and James Moody. He will perform Friday, September 10 with his trio (Tim Horner on drums and Martin Wind on bass) at Gilly’s, 132 S. Jefferson St. Music begins at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $12. Tickets can be purchased on the day of show, by calling the Cityfolk box office at (937) 496-3863 or visiting online at www.Cityfolk.org.
