Gail Dobson and student

Sunday, October 24 – 5pm
Gail Dobson Band
songs of love & peace on Earth

Gail Dobson brings a quintet this evening featuring renowned reed player and educator Paul Contos, pianist Adam Shulman, bassist Matt Montgomery and drummer Omar Aran, with guest singers from Gail’s vocal studio. Tonight kicks off an early evening Sunday series of jazz, Americana and other music. All ages welcome.

Gail has been acclaimed in the Bay Area and nationally as a jazz singer since her youth in the 1970s, and continues to perform and teach to this day. With her husband, the late pianist Smith Dobson, she raised two musicians well known to audiences on both coasts; their son Smith Dobson V is a multi-instrumentalist who started out on drums and soon mastered the vibes and saxophone — he’s one of the top jazz players in the Bay Area today. Their daughter Sasha has a career as a vocalist in New York, well known for her role in the alt country trio Puss n Boots with Norah Jones and Catherine Popper. Her new album, “Girl Talk” with Peter Bernstein on guitar, is a killer.

Gail’s embrace of music from jazz standards to pop classics leads to an infectious enthusiasm for all music that never fails to please.
