The Charles Unger Experience / Mr. Tipple’s
One of only a handful of real jazz clubs in San Francisco, Mr. Tipple’s has quickly become a beloved nightspot since opening in December 2015. A bar and recording studio, the space starts to feel like an after-hours hang long before midnight. Saturdays for the past two years, the afterparty has been powered by saxophonist Charles Unger and his soul-drenched quartet, featuring pianist Sue Crosman, drummer Tony Coleman and bassist Vicky Grossi. A veteran player who held down a weekly hit at the now-shuttered Les Joulins Jazz Bistro for two decades, Unger knows how to tailor his music for the moment. “I keep it lively: soul jazz with a beat,” he says. “For me, it’s good having a long-term engagement. It keeps me on my toes and keeps material fresh. Visibility is everything in this industry. When people call me for gigs now, I say, just come see the band; don’t take my word for it.”
