Saturday, October 8th – 7:30-10pm
The Smith Dobson Quartet
plays Bird & Beckett’s “jazz club”
every Saturday night, when lights are low…

Smith Dobson is a triple jazz threat, a respected and much sought player on saxophone, vibes and drums. He’s heir to several generations of family talent — his father was a top pianist on the scene through his untimely death in 2001, and his mother is a jazz singer and teacher of repute.

Tonight, Smith is joined by long-time colleagues Adam Shulman on piano, Eric Markowitz on bass and Evan Hughes on drums — first-call players all heard regularly at every significant jazz venue in the region.  Two sets of bop, standards and originals.
