Sunday, October 20th – 7pm
In the Velvet Lounge:
Alex Harding & Lucien Ban on tour!
with Phillip Greenlief & Kjell Nordeson

San Francisco’s own Phillip Greenlief, a tenor saxophonist of immense talent and scope whose career in music takes him to major venues worldwide, returns to Bird & Beckett with a quartet anchored by Swedish drummer Kjell Nordeson, now a Bay Area resident. At the core of the group, two traveling musicians whose collaborations stretch back two decades — Detroit-born and -based baritone saxophonist Alex Harding and Transylvania-born, New York-based pianist Lucien Ban. 

Together, Harding and Ban have appeared on a number of albums for American and European labels and in countless concerts and tours. Their travels this fall celebrate the Sunnyside Records release of a long-awaited duet recording, “a unique amalgamation of original pieces and improvisations informed by traditions of jazz, blues, and European chamber music.”

You’re in for a fascinating and beautiful night of music played by four master jazz musicians.

$20 cover charge / sliding scale available.
