The Michael O’Neill Quartet has developed an avid following over nearly two decades. O’Neill’s latest album, And Then It Rained (Jazzmo Records, 2020), featuring bassist Dan Feiszli and drummer Jason Lewis alongside pianist Michael Bluestein, is his fourth, and the first to focus on his original compositions.  O’Neill is joined on his Bird & Beckett date by Feiszli and Lewis as well as pianist Adam Shulman, who has worked with major artists including Paula West, Stefon Harris, Dayna Stephens, Miguel Zenon, Mark Murphy, Larry Coryell, Grant Stewart, John Clayton, and Bobby Hutcherson, and has made four albums under his own name. First call drummer Jason Lewis has played with  Boz Scaggs, Gary Burton, Paul McCandless, Regina Carter, Kurt Elling and Taylor Eigsti, among others. Dan Feiszli is a respected recording engineer as well as being an in-demand bassist. He was recently the bassist in the San Francisco production of the Broadway hit “Hamilton” until it closed due to Covid-19. 

Tonight’s jazz is live in the bookshop for a capacity audience of 25, and is also viewable as a live stream on YouTube or Facebook.
