Keystone Korner 45Th Anniversary Celebration
A special Saturday afternoon concert celebrating San Francisco's iconic North Beach club, Keystone Korner. The Bach concert complements performances at Kuumbwa and Pier 23 to round out the weekend celebration. Over a course of 11 years starting in 1972, the Keystone showcased many of the world's finest musicians, whose live recordings have become important contributions to the jazz canon. For much of that period, the Bach presented some of the same musicians on Sunday afternoons while Kuumbwa hosted on Monday nights, bringing world class music from the city to the coast. Todd Barkan will MC the celebration concert, featuring Charles McPherson, Gary Bartz, Azar Lawrence, Eddie Henderson, Denny Zeitlin, Mel Martin, Ray Drummond, Kenneth Nash, Benito Gonzalez, and other special guests.
