On the first Friday of each month, our weekly jazz in the bookshop series features Don Prell’s Seabop Ensemble. Bassist Prell is a veteran of the 1950s LA-based Bud Shank Quartet and 30 years with the San Francisco Symphony. He’s a fiercely avid jazz player, willing to play anywhere and any time and has been a key to keeping our weekly jazz series going these many years.
SeaBop is the ensemble crafted for the date by Don Prell, drawing on some of the best jazz musicians in the Bay Area. That said, the group has settled into a vital groove with reed player Jerry Logas and pianist Michael Parsons, lately augmented by Vinnie Rodriguez on drums.
