From 1972 until its closing in 1983, Todd Barkan’s Keystone Korner in San Francisco was widely considered to be one of the world’s top jazz venues. The club played host to a slew of live performances from such legends as Stan Getz, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis and Betty Carter. Todd is a renowned jazz producer and impresario, earning a prized NEA Jazz Masters fellowship in 2018. Chef Robert Wiedmaier was born in Germany and trained in Belgium and the Netherlands. He landed in the D.C. area in the 1980’s, and over the last three decades has earned the reputation as one of the country’s most respected chefs. His RW Restaurant Group operates some of the Capitol’s top eateries, including the acclaimed Marcel’s. In April 2019, these two powerhouses teamed up to revive the Keystone Korner in Baltimore. Acclaimed jazz bassist Ron Carter christened the club’s reopening with three nights of performances. We keep things jazzy with a 2014 performance by the Scott Colberg Trio from our archives.
