Bird & Beckett piano marathon

Friday, July 31st – 5:30-8:00 pm
The Don Alberts Trio
jazz in the bookshop every Friday!

Don AlbertsPianist Don Alberts has the bebop knowledge and technique we love so well at Bird & Beckett, as well as being a prolific composer, a versatile poet, a fiction writer and a documentarian. Don has recorded several cds and has published many volumes of his compositions. His books include A Diary of the Underdogs: San Francisco Jazz in the 1960s as well as The Rushing, a thinly veiled autobiographical novel of a jazz musician’s development, joys and demons and a number of fictions in a variety of genres, plus several volumes of poetry, including Ancient Warrior: Selected Poems, Small Unrested Desires, and others.

As a jazz pianist, Don excels in the trio format, which showcases his bebop upbringing, his lyrical way with the jazz standards, as well as his solid compositional skills.  Long-time trio partner Art Lewis is on drums, with Aaron Cohn on bass.
