Jazz in the Afternoon

Myron Cohen Quartet

Saturday, June 9, 1 – 3 p.m.
Breathless Wines
499 Moore Lane

Drummer Myron Cohen and violinist-singer Sandi Poindexter bring a wealth of experience with them to the bandstand. But more importantly, they reach for the stars. This is no doubt in part to lessons they learned from playing with jazz heroes like Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Wayne Shorter, as Myron did, and John Handy and Idris Ackamoor, as Sandi did.

What it means is the audience is always in for a ride, and this is especially true when Lorenzo Farrell brings the greasy blues on the keyboard, and Danny Castro bends the strings on his upright bass. This is jazz that sizzles and stings. And it’s free, on Saturday afternoon, June 9. You can reserve your free space with an online reservation.

The Breathless Tasting Room, located just west of the square in downtown Healdsburg, is a place where guests can taste delicious sparkling wines, stroll the gardens, enjoy a leisurely picnic, or take lessons in beheading a bottle of sparkling with an authentic Italian Saber. Nominated for Best New Winery from San Francisco Magazine in 2017.
