Friday, November 4th – 5:30-8 pm
Seabop! Bassist Don Prell
with Al Molina, trumpet; Jerry Logas, sax; Vinnie Rodriguez, drums
jazz in the bookshop every Friday!

Don-Jerry-vinnieDon Prell captains the ship of jazz for another evening of bebop and standards. Don’s been keeping this thing afloat at Bird & Beckett since late 2002, when he joined the Friday night cral-molinaew.

His career in jazz reaches back to the 1950s, however, when he was a key participant in the Los Angeles jazz scene – touring and recording with Bud Shank, playing constantly at clubs including the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach and the Haig in downtown L.A. Tours with Shank took him across the country and to the Netherlands, France and South Africa.

This pianoless quartet echoes the Gerry Mulligan / Chet Baker unit that made waves in early 1950s. Don was there at its birth.
