Dean Reilly Jazz Trio
live at Bird & Beckett’s Saturday night jazz club
November 19th, 7:30-10 pm, $10 cover charge

deanreillyDean Reilly was right at the center of the wave of San Francisco jazz that came out of North Beach in the 1950s, playing bass in Vince Guaraldi’s first trio starting in 1956. In 1962, he went on the road with the Kingston Trio and that lasted for a couple of decades, helping put Dean’s kids through college. Along the way he recorded with Helen Humes, Cal Tjader, George Barnes and others.

He’s still every bit the consummate, hip bassist he was in the 1950s. You can hear him monthly at Bird & Beckett in the 230 Jones Street, Local 6 Literary Jazz Band in the company of colleagues he’s know for 50 years. And you can hear him tonight leading a little trio with old friends Frank Phipps (trombone) and Allen Klein (guitar).

Celebrate San Francisco jazz history tonight at jazz club!
