Keith Saunders

Friday, June 26th – 7pm
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.

"It is in doubt and not in faith that the salvation of the world is to be found. Faith is a delusion and a snare: a pitfall, a prison. It intimidates the intellect. With fear of eternal damnation religion crushes intellectual activity; with hero worship it destroys individuality; with hopes for the beyond it prevents the growth of ideals for the present. It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."

-- Job Harriman, 1902
