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

Friday, March 25 – 7:30pm
Tony Johnson Quartet

Solid, swingin’, straight ahead jazz & hard bop.

Tony Johnson leads our fourth Friday jazz dates in the bookshop, has for many years! But tonight, we’re subbing in the estimable Smith Dobson V for Tony since he took a major spill on that bike he still rides in his eighth decade. He’ll be mending for a few weeks yet. Fear not. This is a great band, and Smith knows just how to join the swing.

Bob Kenmotsu, tenor sax
Keith Saunders, piano
Eric Markowitz, bass
Smith Dobson, drums


















$20 cash cover charge; BYOB; proof of vaccination, a mask. Doors open at 7:20pm.
