CD Release! “Jazz is My Religion”
Recorded LIVE! at Bird & Beckett
The Dave Parker Quartet

contrabassJoin us for a Friday evening celebration of a fantastic recording!  The Dave Parker Quartet — with Dave on bass, Charles Hamlton on trombone, Jerry Logas on baritone sax, guest artist Hal Richards on soprano sax and Bob Marshall on drums will convene at Bird & Beckett to celebrate the quartet’s live CD — “Jazz is My Religion” — recorded right here!

Bassist Dave Parker has fielded a quartet at Glen Park venues for over a decade — memorably at the Red Rock Lounge and now P’tit Laurent down at the corner of Diamond & Chenery, and many the fifth Friday booking at Bird & Beckett has been his.  The last three dates have yielded a bumper crop of recordings, which he’s boiled down to this exquisite CD.

Join us for the music and the party!
