Grant with Noel

Saturday, Sept. 12th – Grant Levin!
Double Header: Duo at 4, Quartet at 7:30

DUO: Pianist Grant Levin is in the store with a duo format from 4 to 6 pm, Saturday the 12th, with Pepe Jacobo on drums. It’s a fruitful collaboration that grows more interesting with each outing. Your tips make this a worthwhile endeavor monetarily for the musicians – $5-10 suggested, though it’s really up to you. Do more, if it doesn’t trouble you!

QUARTET: Grant Levin is joined in the evening “jazz club” slot by Noel Jewkes on saxophone — truly one of the great saxophone players inhabiting the San Francisco/Bay Area jazz scene, and Kash Killion on bass, a mega talent in his own right, reprising a combination that worked magic back in June. Tonight, he’s adding Rufus Haereiti on drums, an exciting prospect given what we’ve been able to glean about his career and his association with Grant to date. Read a recent article on Noel here, a bit on Kash here, and here for Rufus’s work.

We ask $10 at the door for our Saturday night dates, absolutely one of the great entertainment deals in town.  “jazz club” happens every Saturday at Bird & Beckett from 7:30 to 10 pm. We turn the lights down, dress the place up and show you a good time, promising a memorable night of music by some of the Bay Area’s finest musicians.
