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

Thursday, August 18 – 7:30pm
Zilber/Stowell Duo

Guitar legend John Stowell and master saxophonist Michael Zilber have enjoyed a fertile musical relationship stretching back two decades, including three critically-acclaimed cds on Origin Records.

2015’s “Basement Blues” was a Downbeat “Top CD of the Year.”

Zilber and Stowell have performed numerous times together through the years at leading venues on both coasts, but the pandemic hit pause on this ongoing and fruitful collaboration.

Their duo show at Bird & Beckett is the first opportunity to hear the two of them together in two and a half years.

Zilber was declared one of the true masters of modern jazz saxophone” by All About Jazz.  Stowell “plays his amplified guitar as if he were surrounded by fine crystal… (a) slow burning, sustained energy,” said Downbeat.

More about both on  www.johnstowell.com and www.michaelzilber,com.
