Danny Zeitlin LIVE at Kitano

November 19, 2011

And why is Denny Zeitlin important? There is the obvious matter of his formidable technical command of the instrument. His touch, his dynamics, his clarity of execution are exemplary. But even more to the point, Zeitlin came to grips with virtually all of the pressing issues facing the jazz keyboardists of his generation. These were matters that most of his contemporaries addressed partially or with varying degrees of success, or (in some instances) tried to ignore. But Zeitlin’s penetrating intellect and vision allowed him to find solutions where others merely encountered problems.
All that AND he’s a clinical professor of psychiatry at University of California, San Francisco. He has recorded more than 30 albums, including more than 100 original compositions, and was a first place winner of the Down Beat International Jazz Critics Poll in 1965 and 1974.
He’s doing it LIVE tonight at Hotel Kitano. Get dressed up and get out for a wonderful evening of jazz.
