Event

FRANK JACKSON & KENNY WASHINGTON at the Saturday Salon Series
Legendary Bay Area jazz pianist & vocalist Frank Jackson, is recognized as a brilliant jazz pianist, & vocalist.  Frank is the "real deal" - He has heard it all, sung it all and met them all. This jazz pioneer of the San Francisco Fillmore Jazz District has played with and for Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Charlie 'Bird' Parker, Dexter Gordon, 'T-Bone' Walker, and Jimmy Witherspoon. He has a vast repertoire' and will wow us with his warm vocal style and expressive piano work.

The amazing Kenny Washington will be performing with Frank. Kenny has been dubbed the Superman of the Bay Area jazz scene, a vocalist with an exuberantly supple tenor that glides effortlessly into the stratosphere. Capable of astounding improvisational flights, he can also croon like a '70s soul star (think Donny Hathaway or Al Green), with an emotional intensity that's bracing." -- the San Francisco Chronicle

This will be a jaw-dropping experience - two superstars playing together in an intimate setting. Ticket price includes music, beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres. Food served is always local, organic, and vegetarian.
