Neil Adler and Larry Dunlap
Jazz Chromatic Harmonica and Piano Virtuosos
Meet for the First Time
Neil Adler is one of a handful of chromatic harmonica masters who have followed the great Toots Thielemans in the past six decades. A notoriously nuanced and difficult instrument, very few have invested their time and talents in taming the beast and making it sing as well as Neil. He’s been a guest harmonica artist in performances worldwide from Canada to Belgium and beyond, has received a standing ovation down in Half Moon Bay at the storied Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society, is an endorser of Seydel Harmonicas. And yet, he’s an award-winning, Bay Area treasure known to just a lucky few… You’ll be in their number tonight.
Larry Dunlap is at the top of the heap of thousands upon thousands of talented pianists, with a storied career reaching back through the decades. Soloist, accompanist, composer, arranger, Larry’s profile is particularly high from his work with singers Bobbe Norris and Amandio Cabral, a Cape Verdean composer with whom Larry has made a score of recordings.
$15 cash cover charge for the duo.
Doors open at 7:20pm for the 7:30 show.
