Bill Saitta Trio Jams at BackStreet Restaurant

We are back at BackStreet Restaurant again to hear some real Jazz with the marvelously bass player, Bill Saitta.  Bill loves Jazz and it shows in the way he plays.  It hard to find anyone today who still plays acoustical bass these days so getting to hear Bill play is a real treat. Bill's playing reminds me of every body's all time favorite bass player, the great Ray Brown.  Bill reminds me of Ray especially when he plays his bass with a bow.  Bill put together a very great trio with the talented Jay Lewis on drums and Dan Papaila on guitar.  I had not heard Dan play before.  Dan's skill and talent with the electric guitar was a real treat for the everyone.  It was a great evening of Jazz and great food at The BackStreet Restaurant.  There Jazz series continues every Tuesday for the next couple of months.  If you are ever in the Palm Desert area make sure you get over to BackStreet.


  1. Man I wish I was in the area to hear them too!

  2. Dear Anonymous: Besides the great Jazz out here, the weather is just about perfect too! it's not too late to make plans to join us for fun that will continue for the next couple of months.
