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

Friday, October 8 – 7:30pm
Pamela Rose / Terrence Brewer Duo
live jazz in the bookshop and in the stream,
every Friday night

Pamela Rose, vocal
Terrence Brewer, guitar

“One guitar, one voice. All swingin’.”

Long-time friends and collaborators in jazz, Pamela Rose and Terrence Brewer just a few short years ago began thrilling audiences with a duo project based on the great performances that Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass brought to the concert stage and a number of lp releases in the early and mid-1970s. They’ll bring some of that material and their fabulous rapport and talents to Bird & Beckett for one early October evening, much to our delight.

Terrence Brewer has been called “the San Francisco Bay Area’s #1 jazz guitarist,” and there’s ample evidence for that claim. He’s a multiple-award winning guitarist, an in-demand bandleader and a first call sideman, a much admired record producer, concert performer and studio musician, and one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s foremost music educators. Over the past decade, he’s performed over 2,500 concerts the world over, including sold out performances at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Stanford Jazz Workshop, SFJAZZ and Yoshi’s. His performances are among the best audiences will ever encounter.

Pamela Rose has thrilled audiences here and abroad for decades with her swinging, soulful jazz and blues vocals. Her rich, bold, warm voice and her easy rapport with her colleagues on the bandstand thrill audiences every time out. She’s also known for her concerts celebrating remarkable women in blues and jazz. Her ‘Wild Women of Song’ shows resulted in a book and a concert series which has toured nationally over the past ten years-plus. In 2017 Rose created ‘Blues is a Woman,’ likewise greeted with huge acclaim. Both projects have showcased the wealth of talent that female instrumentalists bring to the Bay Area’s jazz, blues and soul community. Pamela herself has a magnificent voice, presence and talent that leaves audiences delighted and deeply satisfied.
