On Sax and Flute, Michael Otwell graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor Degree in Jazz Studies. Over the years he's studied under Joe Henderson, Mel Martin, Bobby McFarrin, Dwight Cannon amongst others.... Fun times were spent on a cruise ship shortly after graduating college. There were a few years on the road throughout North America and Europe, and he’s played every biker bar in the East Bay…. Michael often mentions; “Back in college we played a lot of Jazz. But out in the real world it’s mostly Blues and R&B. Now day's we're all about the Smooth/Latin/Funky/Urban/Jazz sound." Graduated college back in '86, hit the road for a few years, and landed back in the Bay Area. Came up to Sacramento in 2002.
