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

Join us for Friday night jazz. Get a glass of wine or hard cider, a bite from the food truck, and sit back and enjoy the wonderful Bay views.

Ben Stolorow is one of the most in demand jazz pianists in the area both as a leader and sideman. He has performed at Yoshi’s, The Jazzschool, and the Kuumbwa Jazz Center, at the Healdsburg and SF Jazz Festivals, at Oakland’s Art and Soul Festival, and has also toured and performed throughout Japan.

Top-flight acoustic bassist-composer Peter Barshay, who has performed with such players as Milt Jackson, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson and Joe Lovano, made his debut as a leader with Pit of Fashion, which features his plucked wah-wah bass vibrating throughout. Having soaked up a lifetime of sounds on both coasts -- everything from salsa and straight ahead to funk-fusion, avant garde and music derived from the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian traditions -- he brings a wealth of experiences to his teaching and performing.

The food truck on site will satisfy your belly with tasty offerings. To get there, go past the address to the very end of Canal Boulevard in the Port of Richmond until you reach the waters' edge. Free parking. $5 suggested donation. Fun spot to start your weekend.
