Alt Tal is a passionate and hard-hitting
Jazz ensemble in the San Francisco Bay Area
Who play live in Oakland's nouveau-venerable Cafe Van Kleef and acclaimed gastroclub Disco Volante.
We've enjoyed the many opportunities we've had to perform for
audiences around the Bay Area.
Here are some of the venues and parties at which we've had the

2011 has been a year marked by revolutionary upheavals
internationally and the return of struggle right here
in the United States.
For the last ten years, the Center for Economic Research
and Social Change has played a vital role in providing
a forum for the exchange of political ideas that are
necessary to rebuild a fighting left here in the US.
Please join us for our Winter fundraiser.

Phrasing in lyric with its odd breaths and resolve, Alt Tal renders it
sassily. Experience Alt Tal headlining at Club Ego, on Friday, 16 January 2004.
Bringing out the Soprano for Elaine and l'Amoureuse de
mon Père, Alt Tal gets shockingly candid, then gives you a
fistful of black eye with Mossad and the ever-downtown
"I need to belive
My feelings are true."
-- from News from Milan by David Alt
When it comes down to it, everyone likes the best moments of a Jazz
ballad. In this spirit, Alt Tal gives you the untrite
Frivolity, or Just a Cup of Coffee.
"The poison raku glaze browns
My once-fragrant fire-escape vine."
-- from Jasmine by David Alt
Don't miss Alt Tal or you will miss the locus of gravitational deviance.
