TO CELEBRAT E FOUR DECADES OF
providing a low-key musical haven to everyone from
aspiring rock stars to established pros, the storied
little club known as the Baked Potato leased
Hollywood’s Anson Ford Amphitheatre for a
weekend and invited many of their regular performers
and patrons to play at the iconic venue’s
40th Anniversary Jazz Festival. Guitarists on the
bill included Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Scott
Henderson, Steve Lukather, Chris Poland, Michael Landau, Jeff Richman, Jeff Kollman, John Ziegler, and Kirk Fletcher.
“Every musician needs a basement, a garage, a rehearsal pad—someplace—
where they can plug in, play whatever they feel like playing, and
just let loose and jam,” says Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.
“For working musicians in L.A., that place has
always been the Baked Potato.”
Guitarist Jeff Kollman performs with Chad Smith and the Bombastic
Meatbats (the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer’s other
band), at the Baked Potato 40th Anniversary Jazz Festival.
Inset: Steve Lukather and Tal Wilkenfeld.
