After Thursday evening’s blowout, we sweep up,

Scott has been on the job since jazz in the bookshop became a weekly thing at Bird & Beckett, way back in late 2002… next month we’ll mark twenty years of Friday shows! In all those years, we’ve only been without jazz on Friday evening twice.

Come out tonight for a unique and very special trio date. And mark your calendar now to join us for Scott’s next date, October 21st, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of jazz in the bookshop. You can count on Scott to bring a whole new band and a whole new concept, at once comforting in its familiarity and exciting in its freshness, and always swingin’ with the music of Bird to Monk, Diz to Ornette, Duke to Billie, and plenty more.
