The Dr. Legato Express pulls into Bird & Beckett! 

Veteran reed player Noel Jewkes (Dr. Legato) brings in a group
to revisit his classic 1978 outing on Revelation Records,
“Just Passin’ Thru.”

Noel Jewkes – saxes
Dave Bendikeit – tpt & fluglehorn
Keith Saunders – piano
Chris Amberger – bass
Mark Lee – drums
Kay Kostopoulos – vocals

“A prodigious multi-instrumentalist who’s been a mainstay on the Bay Area jazz scene for more than half a century, Noel Jewkes is a compelling, cool-toned tenor player and an accomplished clarinetist, flutist, alto, and soprano saxophonist. Dubbed Dr. Legato for his long, fluid, Lester Young-inspired melodic saxophone lines, he’s also a skilled arranger and original composer…(and)… a graceful accompanist who can add a jolt of electricity to just about any musical situation.”
