And all that jazz

Another entry in the occasional series on Alamedans. The Chronicle had a recent article on Alameda resident and jazz guitarist, Terrence Brewer.

The term “West Coast Jazz” isn’t one you hear bandied about very often these days. It was applied in the ’50s and ’60s … Listening to some current Bay Area jazz artists — especially the guitarist Terrence Brewer — it’s tempting to revive the term. Brewer has a natural, inviting sound that instantly transports you back to the heyday of classic jazz guitar, when giants like Wes Montgomery were comping in hard bop and Hammond B-3 organ bands.
