Concert highlights include a "Noir Medley" of 6 favorite movie themes and Matheny's original "Crime Scenes" suite, a dreamlike series of vignettes linked together with voiceover narrative in the hardboiled detective style of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
One of San Francisco's most beautiful live music venues, the Regency Center lodge features arched open-beam ceilings, dark wood-paneled walls and stained-glass windows.
