In direct line of succession from Bird & Beckett’s earliest foray into weekly jazz parties! It all started in late 2002 when neighborhood jazz veteran Chuck Peterson enlisted friends and fellow musicians to play jazz in the bookshop every Friday after work. Never a missed Friday since then! The musicians in the 230 Jones Street band, colleagues of Chuck from way back, carry the torch!
"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect.

It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
