Hawkeye is a collaboration of extremely fine young jazz players–all active musicians on the local scene who have been heard at the bookshop on a number of occasions with various groups.

We’re more than pleased to present their quartet called Hawkeye, a project that has produced a terrific cd and much fine & adventurous music.
