Riggers' Loft/R&B Cellars, 1325 Canal Boulevard, Richmond

Prepare to swing hard with my trio at Riggers Loft, a favorite wine coop and hard cidery. Spectacular views, delicious food from the rotating food truck and a welcoming atmosphere make it a great hang. Wear layers as it is in a warehouse setting. $5

Celebrate the holiday season with Keith, Robb and me at Riggers Loft Wine Co. Keith Saunders is a mainstay pianist on the SF jazz scene reminiscent of Bud Powell. He lived in New York for a couple of decades and worked and/or recorded with Richie Cole, Frank Wess, Ralph Lalama, Joe Lovano, Hank Crawford, and Mickey Roker and many others. Originally from Los Angeles, he studied with Charlie Shoemake and later with Horace Silver and worked extensively in L.A. with Eddie Harris, Roy McCurdy, and Bill Watrous. He teaches piano and improvisation.

For over six years, bassist Robb Fisher toured and recorded with the legendary Cal Tjader, anchoring Cal's Grammy Award winning album, "La Onda Va Bien" and Grammy Nominee album, "Gozame Pero Ya." He has also worked extensively and recorded with such jazz and Latin luminaries as Chet Baker, Art Pepper, Carmen McRae, Tania María, Clare Fischer, Rob Schneidermann, Eddie Marshall, Dick Whittington, and Anita O’Day.
