Bird & Beckett’s Saturday night “jazz club” series kicked off in July of 2014 with a quartet led by the phenomenal young pianist Grant Levin and featuring veteran saxophonist Noel Jewkes. After nearly four years of consecutive Saturdays, we present these wonderful musicians once again this Saturday night, in two sets highlighted by a generous number of originals and arrangements by Mr. Jewkes! 

Noel Jewkes has set the standard among San Francisco jazz saxophone players for decades, since moving here from Utah where he grew up in a musical family — playing Salt Lake City clubs and area resorts and traveling widely through the region with his uncle’s big band. Starting out here as a jazz player in the early 1960s, he didn’t shy away from the late 1960s rock and roll scene – playing in the all-girls-but-one “Ace of Cups” – but he’s a jazzman through and through, sometimes referred to as Dr. Legato, and always named by his peers as the best among them. Noel will be back at Bird & Beckett May 12th with the Dr. Legato Express – Mark your calendar, and click here to read more!
