Kenny Burrell loves JAZZ and BLUES! And we love JAZZ and BLUES too!! But what we didn't love was that Yoshi's makes patrons who didn't eat at their restaurant to wait OUTSIDE in a line until the doors open vs. the dining patrons who are able to...continued

Kenny Burrell and his band were AWESOME! I loved the performance and especially the time in which each musician did a solo. The band's performance was better than I could have imagined. Kenny Burrell is a master guitarist - much love for him. ...continued

Wow. Kenny is ALWAYS a treat to hear and what an incredible band he had, with Billy Childs on piano, an incredible horn section...good individual players throughout the band. Even the sound seemed better than usual last night. A memorable evening....continued

Burrell was his usual great self. The band was exceptional and tight. The piano and tenor were very creative and exciting to listen to. Would have enjoyed more solos from Kenny.

Great venue--Yoshi's is incredibly intimate--with excellent food. Kenny Burrell was in fine form, with an immensely talented group of musicians. They played incredibly well and generated a lot of audience appreciation for their virtuosity and...continued

Kenny Burrell and the Jazz Heritage All-Stars provided a well-appreciated program of jazz conversations between 7 incredible musicians. I especially appreciated Childs and the tenor saxaphone/flutist...each of the musicians had a story to share. ...continued

Mr. Burrell's birthday show was amazing. It was a packed house at Yoshi's (which is small enough to feel a bit intimate and cozy) and his all star band were impressive, too. A very recommended show for anyone who loves swinging trad jazz.

The music was fantastic! The only issue was the people sitting next to us that talked throughout the entire show. Why do people think it's ok to talk and disturb others at concerts? We left early because they were just too annoying. It destroyed...continued
