The Art Boutiki in San Jose is Silicon Valley's best small music venue and one of the best places for jazz in the entire county.
Erik Deutsch and the Jazz Outlaws will be making San Jose's The Art Boutiki a stop on their current west cost tour, bringing their brand of country influenced jazz into one of the most unique venues in the country.

Having first come to prominence as a member of the funk-jazz collective Fat Mama, Brooklyn-based pianist Erik Deutsch has taken his talents across the globe to play with some of the finest musicians alive. Born in Washington D.C., Erik exists in many musical worlds, touring and recording with pop artists like Norah Jones, Rosanne Cash, Citizen Cope, Shooter Jennings, Alice Smith, Antony and the Johnsons, Phillip Phillips, Joey Arias, Devotchka, and Erin McKeown; or with jazz artists like Charlie Hunter, Theo Bleckmann, Ben Allison, Scott Amendola, Trevor Dunn, Steven Bernstein, Ellery Eskelin, Jim Campilongo, Nels Cline, Jenny Scheinman, Allison Miller, Todd Sickafoose, and Art Lande. Erik was a Jazz Camp West faculty member in 2014.

2015 marks the release of Erik's fourth album entitled Outlaw Jazz. Featuring a new blend of countrified jazz with his signature psychedelic soul-jazz sound, Deutsch is joined by an all-star cast of musicians including country music icon Shooter Jennings on vocals. Since it's release on February 24, 2015 on the Nashville-based record label Cumberland Bros, the music has been met with rave reviews. Rolling Stone debuted the single “Whistlers and Jugglers", JazzTimes debuted the video for “Dearest Darling", and many top publications reviewed the record including the Huffington Post and USA Today.

“Country music and jazz can make for strange bedfellows, but musicians who love both sometimes create fascinating hybrids, like vibraphonist Gary Burton's ahead- of-its-time 1966 album Tennessee Firebird and guitarist Bill Frisell's bluegrass-infused Nashville. Add New York-based pianist Erik Deutsch's Outlaw Jazz to that list" —USA TODAY
