jazz club… when lights are low
The Grant Levin Quartet

Grant Levin with HamirOn the second Saturday of every month, pianist Grant Levin assembles a quartet, choosing players from the ranks of San Francisco’s most talented jazz musicians.

Tonight, enjoy Grant’s in-the-moment collaboration with tenor sax player Jonathan Bautista, bassist Chris Amberger and drummer Pepe Jacobo.

Grant’s compositions are exceptionally lovely and exciting, his improvisational skills superb.  And his sensitivity to the dynamic, rhythmic and harmonic possibilities inherent in the material he works with, as well as his ears for the contribution of the other musicians on the bandstand always make for a thrilling, satisfying experience.

Through the years, Grant has worked with the likes of Pete Yellin, Jerry Dodgion, Dayna Stephens, Noel Jewkes, John Santos, Howard Wiley, Ray Obiedo, Dean Reilly, Melecio Magdaluyo, Marcus Shelby, and numerous others. He has also performed with Little Anthony and the Imperials on keyboards.

“jazz club” is what we call our weekly Saturday night series, now entering its 11th month.  We dress the place up and take the lights down low to create an intimate, listening atmosphere that allows you to go deeper into the music.  You won’t be disappointed!
