5th Friday, August 30th, 5:30 to 8:00 pm
jazz rhythms from the Latin side,
with the Jazz Commissioner,
John Calloway
& a fresh conclave of sidemen

John CallowayOnce in awhile we’re treated to a five-Friday month, and when that happens we get to bring in a favorite pinch-hitting band– this one led by one of the key players on the Latin jazz scene in San Francisco for several decades already… a top musician, a valued educator, the Jazz Commissioner… Dr. John Calloway.

For the date, John has assembled a quintet that features Daniel Casares on tenor sax, Mike Smith on guitar, Mike Arnold on bass and Yoel Bibas on drums and percussion.

Then come hear him lead this band through the rhythm changes from the Bird & Beckett stage!
