Jim Grantham Jazz Jam
The live Jazz Jam at Ruthie’s Cafe is suspended until further notice. Thanks to nagualiorchestra for getting some great YouTube footage.
Jazz at the Coffee Mill
The Sunday afternoon gig at the Coffee Mill currently disbanded. We’ll post here should this event start up again.
Here’s what Daniel King of the Bay Guardian had to say awhile ago:
Come Sunday… Saxophonist, composer and instructor Jim Grantham paid his dues years ago as a fixture at Keystone Korner in San Francisco, and other clubs, before theTodd Barkan-sprung venue and its companions folded in the ’80s. Still, the tenorist retained his skills and continues to gig with the lyricism of a Joe Henderson, the soul of a Stanley Turrentine, and the guts of a David S. Ware. The only difference between then and now is that today’s Grantham takes more risks on the bandstand, holding court every Sunday for a free ride through the standards. The atmosphere is relaxed, the music is powerful, and the ambiance…well, you get the idea.
Hope to see you soon!
