Saturday, June 30, 7:30-10pm at Bird & Beckett
NoCoasters is an innovative jazz piano trio comprised of three top-call musicians who all escaped their Midwestern (i.e. no coast) upbringing for a life in the San Francisco bay area: Lee Bloom, piano; Brandon Essex, bass; and Carrie Jahde, drums. They will be joined by Lincoln Adler on soprano sax. Together they take on jazz, Latin, New Orleans, blues and even country standards and reinvent them in ever changing ways. Their approach is highly improvisational, playful, and communicative, and their live performances are always fresh and exciting.
This is a Guaranteed Fair Wage Fund event where each musician will be paid $150 in advance, regardless of ticket sales. Jazz in the Neighborhood makes this possible by subsidizing 40% of their pay. Bird & Beckett and the Jazz Philanthropists Union guarantees the rest. For tickets and other information, please contact Bird & Beckett.
