Dan DeSandro, the mellifluous jazz keyboardist, has resurfaced at long last. A longtime fixture on the Lafayette café scene, DeSandro has been buttering his bread for the last few years playing private functions. Hey, the money’s better. But Dan the Man will tickle the ivories this Thursday at Pour in River Ranch when he’s joined by multi-instrumentalist Chet Blakistone on bass and guitar.
