SAN FRANCISCO - Linda Kosut, Bay Area jazz and cabaret performer brings her show, “Long As You're Living," a joyous and moving tribute to the great Oscar Brown, Jr., to the Octavia Lounge for two nights only, March 24 & April 7, at 8:00pm. The Octavia Lounge is located at 1772 Market Street at Octavia Blvd, SF. Reservations (800) 838-3006 or online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/10878.

Linda will be backed by pianist/trombonist Max Perkoff and The Max Perkoff Band. (3/24: Fred Randolph, bass; David Rokeach, drums; 4/7: Tom Shader, bass; Lance Dresser, drums)

Kosut performed this show last November to a sell-out crowd at Jazz at Pearl's. The shows at the Octavia Lounge will include new material and includes songs from her upcoming CD also entitled “Long As You're Living," an Oscar Brown, Jr. song originally recorded by Abbey Lincoln.

Linda Kosut has been performing to steady acclaim on the cabaret scenes of New York and the San Francisco Bay Area for several years. Her 2003 debut CD, Life Is But A Dream, was selected as one of the top female vocalist CDs of 2003 by Cabaret Hotline Online in New York.

Now Kosut presents “Long As You're Living," her tribute to the great Oscar Brown, Jr. Brown was an inspirational and influential composer and playwright who died in 2005 at the age of 78. “I grew up on his music," says Kosut. “The emotion and drama he brought to his music were clearly evident as you listened to his songs. His lyrics and delivery were penetrating - performing with an artistic intensity that went right through me."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
