John Calloway Quartet

John CallowaySpecial 5th Friday booking:  John Calloway, flute and percussion, brings in a quartet featuring Andrew Hall on piano; Mike Arnold on bass; and Brian Andres on drums.

Recently, John spent time in Cuban recording studios with top local talent there to lay down tracks for a forthcoming cd.  He’s long been a key player locally, especially on the latin jazz side, as well as an influential teacher at SFSU and other institutions and recently served a long stint on the SF Arts Commission.

The quartet will deliver two sets of top quality straight-ahead and latin jazz and bebop!  Happy Halloween!

Come celebrate the end of the baseball season as we kick off another three-day run of great jazz dates, starting tonight at 5:30, Saturday at 8 (Smith Dobson Quartet) and Sunday at 4:30 (Randy Craig Quartet).
