Yancie Taylor Jazztet
when lights are low…
every Saturday night
Vibraphonist Yancie Taylor has been a cornerstone of the Northern California jazz scene for decades, most reliably heard for the past decade at Geoffrey’s Inner Circle in downtown Oakland where he’s long held forth with a combo and hosts a jam session that’s legendary.
Tonight, he’ll lead a quintet at Bird & Beckett featuring saxophonist James Bailey, pianist Joe Warner, bassist Ravi Abcarian and drummer Ron Marabuto.
$20 cover charge; sliding scale available

It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
