Saturday, June 15th – 7:30-10pm
Matt Renzi’s Shoebox Orchestra
jazz club! when lights are low…

Matt Renzi’s Shoebox Orchestra Trio marked his debut on the Bird & Beckett stage back in December 2016… after a decade or two as an internationally renowned figure leading his own groups in New York and Rome, between which he split his time before returning to his hometown…

Now, add another horn — trumpeter Erik Jekabson — alongside SOT members Peter Barshay (bass) and Hamir Atwal (drums) and we’ve got the full orchestra… well the quartet version, anyway!

Matt is a unique voice on saxophone, a prolific composer, a marvelous re-interpreter of the jazz canon. Think on One!


Four well-traveled jazz players join forces on the Bird & Beckett stage tonight!
Matt Renzi is the
son of the late Paul Renzi,
principle flute for the SF Symphony from 1944 to 2004.
was born, grew up and came of age in San Francisco,
then established himself in both New York and Rome
where he continues to maintain working trios.
He returned to San Francisco several years ago,
remaining active in all three cities.
