Trumpeter Aya Takazawa + Calligrapher Setsuhi Shiraishi

$20 cover charge.

Aya Takazawa is a rising star on jazz trumpet in her home country of Japan and is making her mark internationally. She’ll be coming into Bird & Beckett straight from the Monterey Jazz Festival, where she debuts with her own quintet on Sunday. Aya has made strong connections with the Marsalis clan of New Orleans, evidenced in her cd, “Crescent City Jazz” (King Records, 2017). At Bird & Beckett, she’s in excellent company with guitarist Jack Tone-Riordan, bassist Eric Markowitz and drummer Darrell Green.

Aya will also be joined by master shodo calligrapher Setsuhi Shiraishi, renowned for her performances accompanied by jazz and other musicians, as well for her work in fashion and design. Setsuhi’s solo exhibition at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch opened on September 22 and continues through December 20,
