The Sanders/Larson Jazz Quintet
live streamed jazz every Friday
from Bird & Beckett

A throwback to the great small jazz groups of the early 1960’s, the Sanders/Larson Jazz Quintet is a mainstay of the San Francisco jazz community, honed in countless nights on the bandstand of Club Deluxe and other great Northern California venues. The quintet’s sound and style is rooted in the 60’s Blue Note era, the heyday of small group jazz. Original compositions by quintet members fit snugly with tunes by jazz legends like Hank Mobley, Miles Davis, Horace Silver and Donald Byrd.

You can get a taste of the quintet’s sound at this link:

Jay Standards – trumpet
Scott Larson – trombone
Keith Saunders – piano
Eric Markowitz – bass
Evan Hughes – drums
