Back to Woody's again on Jan 26th to hear keyboard player Barnaby Finch, Sax and flute player Rod Kokolj, drummer Jeff Olsen and of course, the main man, Bill Saitta on bass. I had hear many good things about Barnaby and had to hear him for myself. He was terrific and so was the rest of the group.  I had hear Rod Kokolj before but he was in the groove tonight.  And many of my singer friends had told me that Jeff Olson had the softest hands in the desert and I can now validate their opinion.  The sounds tonight were wonderful and the quartet played to a full house of appreciate Jazz fans.

I have to say that if you have not been to Woody's yet you are really missing the boat. Tonight Woody's had a free wine tasting with finger food.  And the menu at Woody's is great if you like comfort food and great wines at the lowest prices in the desert.  If you like great jazz sounds and great reasonable food, Woody's is your place. It's located at 317 Indian Ave., Palm Springs, Ca.
