But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Tom Solinger Quartet

Tom SolingerJazz violinist and vocalist Tom Solinger has assembled a quartet featuring Sue Crosman, piano; John Clark, bass; and Mark Lee, drums.

Tom’s time on the San Francisco jazz scene dates back to the 1970s; he’s known John, a first class bassist, since those days. Mark has been a key drummer on the local scene for years, and Sue’s known to be queen of the solo jazz pianists in the Nob Hill hotels.  Together, the four players will make some fine and fun music this afternoon.

Tom has been a piano tuner by trade for decades now — keeping the Club Fugazi’s much used instrument in shape for the demands of Beach Blanket Babylon with bi-weekly visits as well as babying along countless grands gracing the parlors of Nob Hill swells — but his heart is in small combo work like you’ll hear today.

This date, like so many you can hear at Bird & Beckett, embodies fifty years of San Francisco live jazz history.  And this one in particular?  This one is for Harvey Robb, may he rest in peace — and for Janet.
