with the music & the musicians!

Friday, July 19th, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
The Scott Foster Organ Trio

We’re proud to announce that beginning in July, our “jazz in the bookshop” series will now feature a group led by guitarist Scott Foster on the third Friday of each month.

scott fosterScott is a founding member of Bird & Beckett’s live jazz tradition, having played guitar on our Friday night dates ever since the series began back in late 2002.

He’s also our favorite local jazz guitarist, bar none, and we’re pleased to now be able to present him with his own group on a monthly basis as part of the regular rotation in our Friday jazz in the bookshop series.

For the July 19th debut of Scott’s regular monthly appearance as a leader at Bird & Beckett, he’ll be bringing in a trio featuring Adam Shulman on organ and drummer Dan Foltz, playing in a classic bluesy, groove that will thrill you to the core.

Each and every month, we present Don Prell’s Seabop Ensemble on the first Friday, the Jimmy Ryan Quintet on the second Friday, the Scott Foster group on the third Friday and the Chuck Peterson Quintet on the fourth Friday.  The City’s longest running jazz party continues!  Ten years-plus of weekly jazz dates in San Francisco’s best little neighborhood bookshop.  Don’t miss out!
