Bobby Shew is the fea­tured mu­si­cian in a jazz-quar­tet gig at 7:30 p.m. Satur­day, Nov. 26, at El Mé­son Restau­rant & Tapas Bar, 213 Washington Ave. As a teenager grow­ing up in Al­bu­querque, Shew played trum­pet in cof­fee­houses, at din­ner clubs, and at dances with his own band. He went on to work na­tion­ally as a mem­ber of the Tommy Dorsey Orches­tra and Woody Herman’s band. Later, based in Los An­ge­les, he played with Ho­race Sil­ver, Bud Shank, Louie Bell­son, Benny Good­man, and many other renowned band­leaders. Over the years, he also worked in movies and tele­vi­sion, with Rocky, Grease, Happy Days, and Streets of San Fran­cisco among his cred­its. Since mov­ing back to Al­bu­querque, Shew has re­mained busy; he plays El Mesón with the Cal Haines Quar­tet: Haines on drums, Jim Ahrend on pi­ano, and Colin Deu­ble on bass.
