Redwood City Public Library Presents Green Jazz - a Tangria Group Jazz Experience, Live in Concert

Redwood City, CA - February 9, 2011 - Jazz is one of America’s own home-grown styles of music…and Green Jazz is a unique project by the Tangria Jazz Group, with music inspired by the environmental work of its leader, Sheryl Mebane. Tangria’s musical evolution combines poetry and environmental justice- themed original jazz inspired by nature, and the Redwood City Public Library is thrilled to host their upcoming performance. This FREE concert event takes place on Saturday, February 19th at 2 pm at the Downtown Library in the Fireplace Room, 1044 Middlefield Road, in Redwood City.

Sheryl Mebane is the composer, drummer, and leader of Tangria Jazz Group, and is joined by Pianist Simon Rochester, a physics researcher at UC Berkeley, and Justin Hellman, who has a bachelor's degree in music from UC Berkeley. Their music is “an entertaining session of some downright hard straight jazz served in a creative and engaging fashion by a terrific threesome” according to Ed Blanco, of Ejazz News.

More information about Tangria is online at This concert is funded in part by the Puffin Foundation, which has sought to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artists and art organizations that are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to their race, gender, or social philosophy.

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and is the learning center of our community. For more information about library events and services you may access the library’s home page at or call 780-7018.
