Jazz Stories: Live Jazz. Wonderful Stories.

Hi there jazz and movie lovers!,

This Tuesday October 1st, Jazz Stories presents: "Jazz + The Movies!"

These two arts exploded in tandem. And the flicks we love are jammed with jazz.

Come feel the joy (not kidding) with the fabulous Cayce Carnahan (trumpet), the captivating David Rokeach (drums), the astonishing Greg Johnson (tenor sax), and Richard Leiter (keys, vocals, stories).

Also starring (loosely speaking): Harry Arlen & Henry Mancini & Spike Lee's dad.

This is going to be a WAY above average Jazz Stories, so come early - and bring your friends and family to this amazing night we share every month.

(Yeah, it's hard to believe, but it's still FREE.)



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.
