Bring chairs and blankets to watch the sunset, enjoy café specials, and hear live jazz by the four-time recipient of the “Jazz Writer of the Year” award from SESAC, Bill O'Connell. 

After a 40 year long career that has seen him excel as a leader, soloist, arranger, musical director, and accompanist for some of the most celebrated names in jazz and Latin music, Bill O’Connell can lay claim to a track record of challenging and artistic-diverse triumphs that few of his peers can match. Bill has displayed his versatility performing , writing and arranging for numerous jazz and latin jazz artists including Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Mongo SantaMaria, Dave Valentin, Gato Barbieri as well as vocalists Jon Lucien, Astrud Gilberto and Kenny Rankin. Throughout, Bill O’Connell turns in a virtuoso performance that simply dazzles in the sheer accuracy of pitch and rhythm, and musicianly dynamism that has made him a force to reckon with among pianists playing for a generation.

The Golden Pear Cafe will be selling food and drink specials, so come socialize, soak in the scenery, and listen to the sounds of summer.

Table Seating is reserved for Golden Pear Cafe patrons so guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy the live music from the terrace and the Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley Foundation Event Lawn.

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group, Bridgehampton National Bank, and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.  Modern Luxury's BEACH Magazine is the Media Sponsor.
