From The Nash: Led by drummer Scott Sadlon, SONRISA is a collective of some of the most talented jazz musicians in the Phoenix area. Named after the Spanish word for “Smile” the group brings a joyful energy to all of its performances. It’s a rare occasion that all the members get to play together in the same band, which makes for a very special musical energy on stage. Each tune, whether a jazz standard, a Latin piece, or a contemporary take on a Rock and Roll classic takes on its own personality through the band’s unique interpretation.
