jazz pianist Keith Saunders
a live stream concert on facebook
jazz in the bookshop every Friday since 2002
Keith Saunders is in the very top echelon of great jazz players in the region, with decades on the scene in New York, decades more in San Francisco and environs, many years leading his own quintet back east, a deeply felt bebop ethos and a vast knowledge of the music in all its forms.
He’s a go-to pianist for all the great horn players plying their trade in these parts, and many a vocalist as well.
Plus, he’s a beautiful cat.
Come to Bird & Beckett by way of our live stream on facebook to hear him play two sets of solo piano jazz for your Friday evening pleasure. Make yourself comfortable in your own living room, and enjoy your time with the music under the fingers of its great perfomers.
Stop by our live stream on facebook for what promises to be a swingin’ and boppish foray into the dizzy atmospheres of jazz.
Here’s where to view the facebook live stream:

Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
