john calloway interview 2

Friday, July 18th — 5:30-8:00 pm
The John Calloway Quartet

john calloway interview 2Flautist John Calloway is a key Bay Area jazz musician — with a national reputation.  Known best for his latin jazz work, he’s also a consummate straight ahead player, and an educator of the top rank.  For the past several years, he was also a member of the San Francisco Arts Commission, hence the sobriquet, the “Jazz Commissioner!”  Those political-cultural responsibilities have subsided, so he can now once again dig deep into the music that is his raison d’etre.  We’re always overjoyed when John can fit one of our Friday gigs into his schedule — tonight, Scott Foster has to be out of town, so John is our man!  He always brings along musicians that will surprise and delight.  Don’t miss this one!
