Dave Bendigkeit and the Keepers of the Flame, with David Udolf, Chris Amberger and Akira Tana, continue their monthly performances, second Tuesday from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at Brisbane’s historic Seven Mile House. As veterans of the Bay Area jazz scene, they have played with everyone from Cab Calloway, Shelly Manne and Ella Fitzgerald to Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Stitt, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Art Blakey and many other giants of this music. They bring a stellar collective talent to the bandstand, where their mastery of both the complex language of jazz and the intricate rules of improvisation yields an easy, congenial musical expression that is spontaneous, playful and intuitive.
Trumpeter Dave Bendigkeit “is, above all, an expressive soloist, one who shows that rare combination of virtuosity and individualism which has always marked jazz’s superior talents. . . . “ - Ted Gioia - Quartet Records
