Jay Sanders, Will Boyd, Zack Page & Alan Hall

Every Tuesday, savor experimental Musica Universalis focused primarily on the group's original writing and sonic explorations. These aural wayfarers fear no boundary.

With a musical career spanning 30 years, Composer, producer, and guitarist Jay Sanders thrives on actualizing creative spaces for improvisational and exploratory music.

Multi-reed instrumentalist, composer, and educator Will Boyd hails from soul sax tradition like artists Eddie Harris, Hank Crawford, David "Fat Head" Newman, King Curtis and Johnny Hodges. Originally from Orangeburg SC by way of Queens NY, Will now resides in Asheville.

Alan Hall has been a professional drummer for over 45 years. A prodigious composer, Alan also leads the Asheville Jazz Collective, a staple of Little Jumbo's Monday jazz series.

Let's be honest, if you enjoy live music in Asheville, NC, and you don't know the singularity known as Zack Page, you've clearly been living under a rock. One of the area's most sought after musicians, Zack brings his zeal for the absurd to each thunderous emanation.

“This Five Points neighborhood bar takes cocktail history seriously—it’s named after a New York bar once run by illustrious nineteenth-century barman Harry Johnson. The drinks menu recently was revamped after a pandemic-long season of sampling and testing. (Yes, that beats however you spend your pandemic.) There’s no better excuse to pull up a seat and see what’s new and delicious.”

“Little Jumbo was everything we could have wished for in a cocktail bar, and then some. Every cocktail has 5 ingredients or less to expedite the process, but don’t worry, the flavor is not compromised. We were totally impressed by the Manhattan service for Two, which was presented on a silver platter with necessary accompaniments- including a bowl of cherries!?”

“Simply put, Little Jumbo should be at the top of your list of places for cocktails in Asheville. The drinks and service are both top-notch, and the atmosphere is reminiscent of a relaxed speakeasy, without a trace of the pretention that can sometimes be found in such places.”

“This warmly welcoming cocktail bar has a classic vibe and a focus on good, unpretentious service. Isn't that the way all bars should be?”

“Little Jumbo has a comfortable yet modern feel, lacks affectation and focuses on the drink and the experience.”

“As you sip your drink, you feel a cozy intimateness, yet there’s a buzz to the atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re a part of something bigger… a community, a neighborhood.”
