May 26th – 4:30-6:30 pm: Pacific Jazz Connection

Assorted Flavors of Pacific Jazz - William ClaxtonJerry Logas, a multi-instrumentalist who covers all manner of saxes, clarinet and flute with equal parts lyricism and power, and Smith Dobson V, tenor player extraordinaire, heir to a multi-generational musical tradition and steeped from the cradle in jazz, bring us a fantastic quintet drawing from the deep well of “West Coast Jazz” that set listeners on their collective ear back in the late 1950s.

Pacific Jazz Connection is co-led by Jerry Logas on baritone sax and Smith Dobson V on tenor sax, and a truly top-flight rhythm section comprising pianist Keith Saunders, bassist Michael Glynn and drummer Tony Johnson.

Smith Dobson’s dad, also Smith, was a key pianist & vibes player on the regional (and national) scene for decades who played with all the stars of the West Coast jazz scene throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and Smith the younger more than carries on the family tradition of jazz excellence.  Smith V, as he’s often known, is one of the most in-demand young musicians in town, covering vibes, drums, sax and piano in multiple genres.  But he’s just one member in this superb quintet.  You can catch Pacific Jazz Connection at Club Deluxe on Haight Street on the third Saturday of each month starting July 27th.
