Dear Friends:

What has become an annual event begins this week - the visit of jazz piano legend Denny Zeitlin to Mezzrow for a 4 night run.  If you don't know Denny do a little googling.  In the mid-sixties he was emerging as one of the top innovative pianists along with Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner.  Bill Evans called him his "favorite young piano player".  He recorded for CBS several amazing records including in 1964 "Cathexis" with Cecil McBee and Freddie Waits, an album of startling modernity considering the year it was recorded.  In tandem to his jazz career he developed his passion for psychiatry and developed a life-long practice in medicine which continues to this day in the San Francisco area.

Denny performs Wednesday through Saturday.  The first two nights solo piano and the weekend as a trio with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Matt Wilson.  Denny's solo playing is a revelation and piano-players (and everyone else) please don't sleep on this, you won't hear anything like it.  The trio is a longstanding one and this weekend we'll be recording it live.  Tickets will be limited so I highly urge you to reserve your seats for these shows.  Here's the links:

Wed (solo) ->  CLICK
Thur (solo) -> CLICK
Fri (trio) -> CLICK
Sat (trio) ->  CLICK

Of course there's so much great music at both clubs all week - I hope you peruse our schedule and that I see you at the venues.  I wish everyone a peaceful and productive week.

Regards,

Spike
