Sunday, June 22nd — 4:30-6:30 pm
Jazz pianist Joel Forrester
solo!

joel forresterJoel Forrester returns to San Francisco — and Bird & Beckett — to play a few dates around the Bay.  Joel’s well known for his work with the Microscopic Sextet, for solo accompaniment to silent films, for composing the theme for “Fresh Air” on NPR, and for thousands more compositions which he’s spun out as if it were no trick at all!  And then there’s that legendary 8 hour piece of his called “Industrial Arts”.

He’s wonderfully droll, and he’s a wonderful piano player.  Come enjoy a rare opportunity to spend an hour or two in his company!
