But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Friday, May 12th – 5:30-8 pm
Aaron Cohn Quintet/Quartet!
jazz and bebop in the bookshop
every Friday since 2002

Aaron Cohn, bass, leads the charge, with pianist Gaea Schell on the first set only, and guitarist Scott Foster, tenor saxophonist Danny Brown and drummer Omar Aran throughout!  Two sets of top flight jazz by first drawer San Franciscan jazz musicians!

We present jazz in the bookshop every Friday evening, 5:30-8:00 – just like we’ve been doing for the past 15 years.  Never a missed Friday since October 2002.  $10 suggested donation per adult.  Kids free and welcome.
