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

Saturday, April 1st – 7:30-9:30pm
Harvey Wainapel Quartet

The last time Harvey Wainapel played Bird & Beckett, it was mid-summer 2019. A lot of water under the bridge since then–a lot of loss and tears, and lately much falling from that river in the sky. Now’s the time for Harvey’s joyful reemergence before live audiences.

Tonight, Harvey returns to Bird & Beckett with a terrific quartet. A great master of the reeds with a special place in the Bay Area pantheon of jazz musicians, Harvey promises his trademark mix of originals, fresh arrangements of standards and songs that ought to be standards, plus some Brazilian spice.

Welcome back, Harvey!

~~~ BYOB and a twenty for the quartet,
and enjoy live music at Bird & Beckett! ~~~

Harvey has toured internationally with Ray Charles, Joe Lovano, and Airto Moreira/Flora Purim.

Japan’s JazzLife calls him “a musician with his own unique and deep sound.”

“Wainapel’s performance aroused a standing ovation for what was two sets of intricately conceived and played compositions.” —L.A. Jazz Scene

“It’s a pleasure to listen to Harvey’s soulful interpretations!” —Joe Lovano
