Free Jazz Concerts throughout the summer!
Jazz saxophonist Anton Schwartz has been drawing listeners in with the power, spirit and subtle complexity of his music since he bounded onto the San Francisco jazz scene in 1995. In the years since, Anton has won over listeners and critics at high-profile jazz venues across the country, including the Blue Note in New York, Washington D.C.'s Blues Alley and the Monterey Jazz Festival. His appearances at Yoshi's in San Francisco and Oakland draw sellout crowds; one such concert was broadcast nationwide on NPR's JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater in December, 2005. Each of his four CDs has earned sterling reviews and strong airplay, with his most recent Radiant Blue landing Top Five on the national jazz radio charts. While his own writing earns consistently high praise, Anton remains as much at home with the great jazz standards as he is with his own compositions.
Redwood City’s Downtown Jazz series is back again this year with a new name. Formerly Jazz on Main, Downtown Jazz will head to a new location in Downtown this year… the 2600 block of Broadway. Redwood City will host outdoor jazz concerts every Monday evening from June 18th through August 6th featuring the Bay Area's very best jazz artists and other artists from around North America. The jazz is on from 6 - 8pm, and everyone can enjoy the music, eat at one of the many great restaurants on the surrounding streets, and if the mood strikes - DANCE! The all-star lineup will be sure to make for many jazzed-up Monday evenings in Downtown Redwood City. More information for Downtown Jazz at: http://www.redwoodcity.org/events/jazz.html
