    Time: 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:
    The Vallejo Jazz Society
    The Noel Jewkes Septet (featuring Kay Kostopoulos)

    Noel Jewkes is one of the premier saxophone players in Northern California. He has worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 35 years, and has earned a distinguished reputation with lovers of Jazz.

    Listening to the majestic phrasing and harmonic adventurousness of Noel Jewkes is almost like hearing the entire history of modern jazz in a single evening. No wonder he is revered by musicians, critics, and music lovers alike as the premiere Saxist-by-the-Bay. Some years back, Phil Elwood, the legendary jazz critic, said of Noel, “I don’t know of a better contemporary modern saxman anywhere.”

    Kay Kostopoulos is not only one of Northern California’s finest singers, she is also a great friend of Noel’s, and their on-stage partnership exudes a rare chemistry and musical rapport.
