Denise Kidder/Peter Barshay/Parker Grant Jazz Trio

 —  —

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

Join us for Friday night jazz and Brazilian grooves. Get a glass of R&B Cellars or Carica wine or Far West hard cider, a bite from the food truck, and sit back and enjoy the wonderful Bay views.

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.

Pianist Parker Grant is a native of the Bay Area who has been performing on the local jazz scene since his graduation from the prestigious Frost School of Music in Miami in 2013. 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.
