Chuck Peterson Quintet

November 27th – 5:30-8:00 pm
The Chuck Peterson Quintet
jazz in the bookshop every Friday

Chuck Peterson QuintetTalk about your San Francisco jazz…  On the fourth Friday of each month, our weekly jazz in the bookshop series features The 230 Jones Street, Local 6 Literary Jazz Band — aka The Chuck Peterson Quintet — five musicians whose history on the local jazz scene dates back 60 years, to the very early 1950s..

Reed & flute player Chuck Peterson initiated Bird & Beckett’s tradition of Friday jazz sessions back in October of 2002, and now finishes out the month’s schedule of Fridays in the stellar company of four long-time associates, each of whom has been at the top of the jazz scene locally and nationally for six decades.

Reed player Howard Dudune plays with the easy grace of Lester Young and a swinging humor all his own, while guitarist Glen Deardorff drives the rhythm with a fierce insouciance. Bassist Dean Reilly, one of the most respected elder statesmen of the local jazz scene and a well traveled pro, looks, acts and plays like a youngster with his first ducktail. And drummer Tony Johnson, still sporting the Aussie accent of his own youth, swings effortlessly and keeps time with unerring precision.

Do come!  And bring a few bucks to help us pay these fine musicians.  Want to support what we do?  Bring a check made out to the Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project, a California nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.  The culture thanks you!
