Next Jazz Stories, Tuesday, Oct 2nd. “Jazz & Blues!” 

Blues is the heart & soul of most pop & jazz…but what is it really? (Hint: It’s more than you think.)

Answering this question will be a Superstar Lineup: David Rokeach (drums) who’s played with the greats (no kidding). John Hoy (guitar) bringing the soulful touch. Cayce Carnahan (trumpet) who they worship like a God in Europe. And Richard Leiter (keys/vocal/stories).

HOT TIP: Don’t miss this show. Bring new people. It’s going to be wonderful.

7:30 downbeat. It'll go SRO, so come early.   

Free admission. Free snacks. Free love. (Of jazz.)


People love hearing jazz...and hearing about it. Musicians like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Buddy Rich were original, colorful characters artists who said and did astonishing things. Fortunately their colleagues cared enough to document these moments in stories and pictures and we now have a rich repository of photos and anecdotes about these artists, and about the American songwriters and composers who created the raw material of jazz. 

Jazz Stories is a performance of the songs of jazz from its most creative periods intensified with illuminating, funny and touching true stories of the time.

Come hear music and jazz stories you probably have never heard...but will never forget. Hosted by Richard Leiter.

The first Tuesday of every month at Pegasus Books Solano.
