But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Friday, September 3 – 7:30pm
Keith Saunders Trio
plays Horace Silver
live and live-streamed
from the bookshop
every Friday night

Horace Silver, a giant of jazz born in 1928, joined Stan Getz on piano in 1950 and changed the face of jazz. In 1953, he co-founded the Jazz Messengers with Art Blakey and went on to ever greater heights, always with an individual voice that can’t be imitated — only honored.

Pianist Keith Saunders leads a trio in tribute, hot on the heels of Silver’s September 2nd birthday — with Michael Zisman on bass and Tony Johnson on drums.
