Sunday, Dec. 15th – 4:30 to 6:30 pm
The Joe Warner Trio
During the holidays, we’re excited to welcome back the supremely talented young pianist Joe Warner, who’s been making a big impression on jazz audiences — and on some of the best jazz musicians in the Bay Area — for the past several years. This afternooon at Bird & Beckett, he’s playing with bassist Josh Hari and drummer Geechi Taylor. A superb trio, indeed!
Joe is heard around the Bay Area backing top-flight vocalists including the Dynamic Miss Faye Carol and Kenny Washington and sharing the bandstand with instrumentalists that include Marcus Shelby, Ron Belcher, Howard Wiley and Robert Stewart. He also produces the noteworthy “Jazz in the Basement” series at the First Congregational Church of Martinez — undoubtedly worth a trip out there. Take a look at his website: http://www.joewarnermusic.com/
Joe will be putting his trio through their paces with jazz standards and a few Christmas chestnuts this Sunday at Bird & Beckett. It’ll be a lovely respite from the holiday bustle downtown, guaranteed!
