Award Winning Jazz Guitarist Terence Brewer returns with his fifth studio recording as a leader, Setting The Standard: Volume One. Recording for his own record label, Strong Brew Music, Terrence Brewer’s Setting The Standard: Volume One is a classic straight-ahead jazz record covering a spectrum of song styles penned by a who’s-who of legendary composers including Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Rogers & Hart, and many more. Brewer is joined on Setting The Standard by venerable San Francisco Bay area musicians/band leaders Kasey Knudsen (Saxophone), Kelly Park (Piano), Brandon Essex (Acoustic Bass), and for a fourth time, holding down the drum chair, Micah McClain. Returning also, is another critical player, chief recording engineer for the world famous Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, Stephen Hart.

Setting The Standard follows Brewer’s critically acclaimed 2009 release, Groovin’ Wes, a Wes Montgomery tribute project that peaked at #9 on the JazzWeek/Mediaguide National Jazz Radio charts. Ranked #1 on several national and regional jazz charts throughout 2009, Groovin Wes, then received the distinction of ranking 43rd on JazzWeek/Mediaguides ‘Top 100 albums of 2009’. The accolades for Groovin’ Wes come on the heels of receiving both regional and national acclaim for Brewer’s all original composition albums, The Calling: Volume One and Volume Two (2006, Strong Brew Music) and QuintEssential (2008, Strong Brew Music), which spent 12 weeks on the JazzWeek/Mediaguide charts peaking at #17.

Along with media and chart success, Brewer has performed to sold-out crowds at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the world famous Yoshi’s at Jack London Square, Yoshi’s San Francisco, SFJAZZ Jazz Festival, and countless other festivals and venues. Setting The Standard: Volume One looks to be the next inspired chapter in Brewer’s growing musical library.
