Dan Zemelman Quartet 

When: Tue., Jan. 26, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $14

Despite the recent closure of Anna's JazzIsland, it's a great week for jazz in the EastBay. Specifically, it's a great week for jazz piano, with Matt Clark at the Jazzschool (Sat.), Michael Coleman at Jupiter (Fri.), and San Francisco pianist Dan Zemelman celebrating his debut album, One Way or Another, this Tuesday at Oakland Yoshi's (510 Embarcadero). Trained in classical and jazz, Zemelman ultimately parlayed his musical chops into a foreign diplomacy project called the Jazz Ambassadors, which dispatched him to Sri Lanka in 1998. Since then, he's performed in various trio and quartet configurations, arranged music for Ragged Wing Theater Ensemble, and appeared on the John Lee Hooker album Face to Face. Versatility is an important quality for any professional musician, but Zemelman is also moored in the jazz tradition. At least, he seems to know his Real Book by rote. Dan Zemelman Quartet performs Tues., Jan. 26, at 8 p.m. with bassist Andrew Ember, trumpeter Erik Jekabson, and Greg Wyser-Pratte on drums. $14.
