BJ Papa Band
Recently honored with a North Beach lifetime achievement award, BJ Papa has mentored hundreds of young jazz muscians including vocalist Kim Nalley. Pianist/composer BJ Papa is a man who has "paid his dues," playing in San Francisco jazz clubs on both sides of Market Street and in North Beach for years. His first CD features a quintet of hard-blowing young players who interpret BJ’s original tunes with great gusto and straight-ahead playing. Pure bebop all the way! Papa's popular jam sessions are regularly attended by some of the Bay Area's best young jazz players. This is a chance to see young talent mixing it up with jazz veterans, with plenty of great music made, all night long.
