Saxophonist Patrick Wolff held down Wednesday nights at Club Deluxe from early 2013 until the Covid pandemic started. Over the course of these hundreds of gigs, he formed a tightly knit quartet comprised of Adam Shulman, Eric Markowitz, and James Gallagher, helped with regular infusions of inspiration from other great local and touring artists. Wolff used the regular performances as an excuse to delve into forgotten gems of the bebop and hard bop eras from musicians like Elmo Hope, Lucky Thompson, Kenny Dorham, and Clifford Jordan, and these musical explorations led to two albums, Go Down Swinging  and Hi Fidelity Bebop. Well into his second decade on the SF scene, Wolff remains committed to celebrating the living history of Jazz music in its purest forms, and is excited to share the next three Wednesdays at Bird and Beckett with his most swinging compatriots and whoever else may show up with a horn to blow.

The corner store closes at 8pm, so grab something before the show starts and bring it in. Down on Diamond Street, Glen Park Station (the bar, not the BART station) is a congenial spot to hang before the show or on the break, and offers off-sale liquor.  We have a corkscrew and church key and can provide a plastic cup if you don’t bring one with you.

Prior to the pandemic, Mike, Smith & Patrick led solid quartets weekly at the Club Deluxe on Haight at Ashbury, but the Deluxe cancelled the residencies on reopening so they could change the act each night. Haight Street’s loss is Glen Park’s gain in July. For one glorious month, Glen Park audiences won’t need to cross town and brave dark of night and stiff, cold winds to hear these musicians and all this jazz in its glory. The music will be live right in their own neighborhood. And for Deluxe patrons willing to make the trip to sweet Glen Park, come discover the musicians you love in an acoustical space that shows them off beautifully. Two hard blowing sets each night, with special guests sitting in on the second set!

Get down to Bird & Beckett and hear for yourself. Finer jazz can’t be heard than what these cats play.  Here’s a sample from the first show of the Deluxe Holiday in Glen Park — The Mike Olmos Quartet with Javi Santiago, Giulio Cetto and Brian Fishler as heard in the shop on Monday, July 12. Mike returns with the same line up July 26.

If the cover charge seem high to those of you used to the Deluxe, keep in mind
that we don’t rely on the tip jar to augment the door revenues and don’t ply you with drinks.
Instead, we compensate the musicians with a “fair wage” guarantee.
The cover charge and the generosity of our donors make that possible.

Since there’s no bar at Bird & Beckett
you’ll save a lot of money on drinks
~~remember to bring your own!~~

All told, it’s a cheap night out
for a program of great live music
in a congenial atmosphere.

We’ll be very happy to see you here
for the concluding shows in this
three week run of some very special jazz!


Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
