Blackhawk Proudly Presents S.F.'s Top Music Group -- November 20, 2023

San Francisco Examiner, 04-November-1950

Dave Brubeck, a native of the Bay Area, played San Francisco's Blackhawk nightclub in 1950. I remember seeing him and the quartet on television. They were integrated, which was remarkable, and they looked like accountants, but they made wonderful music. When I heard them on KJAZ or elsewhere, I knew there was something different about them.

Blackhawk owner Guido Caccienti famously said “I’ve worked and slaved to keep this place a sewer.”
