$20 cover charge

Jim Grantham, saxophone stylist, bandleader and composer, plays tenor and soprano saxes and flute. His music springs from the tradition of melodic lyricism associated with such composers and instrumentalists as Lester Young, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter, and he has performed with many fine musicians including Bobby McFerrin, George Cables, Eddie Moore, Mark Isham, Ed Kelly, Noel Jewkes and Vince Wallace, among many others. He has recorded with Jessica Williams and Eddie Henderson as well as vocalist Maye Cavallaro.

For this date at Bird & Beckett, Jim’s quartet — which will comprise top San Francisco Bay Area veteran musicians Keith Saunders on piano, Jeff Neighbor on bass and David Rokeach on drums — plays contemporary jazz in a wide variety of styles and moods, featuring numerous original compositions as well as jazz standards from John Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker, and many others.

The Jim Grantham Jazz Quartet offers fine jazz brimming with spirit, creativity, energy, taste and exceptional musicianship.
