The Scott Foster Ensemble
featuring David Boyce
Friday, Nov. 15th, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Scott Foster’s group this Friday includes David Boyce, co-founder of Broun Fellinis, on saxophone, plus bassist Noah Schenker and drummer Dave Mihaly.  All three of Scott’s sidemen on this date have extensive experience on the San Francisco jazz & related improvised music scene.  Each month, Scott enlists some of the most talented musicians around for his Bird & Beckett dates on the third Friday of each month — so we’ve been lucky to hear a rich variety of approaches and styles as the months go by.
