Paula is flawless. Had I known that her two shows in a row didn't repeat a song, I would have attended both. Brava!

Warm up group, the Bells, provided more than the solo featured performer.

Cassandra Wilson was amazing. Period!
The performance space feels a little like a high school auditorium - Yoshi's should invest in some individual lighting at the tables and give it more of a jazz club atmosphere. But the show was beautiful. Go...continued

Gotta love them for the music but the service at the SF location is always problematic. Now they want your credit card before you order. What is this, Burger King? Presumably this speeds thongs up, but when the show ended many people were still...continued

Great, great show. I was mainly looking forward to Alexander O'Neil before the show, but Cherrell was awesome, along with the fantastic band. Hot, hot hot, and so much fun. A not to miss show. :) !!!!!

Time changed from 8 to 7 on the day of performance, scrambled to get there in time. Had to wait 45 minutes to get into the lounge to get food - restaurant wasn't open - at least the food was excellent. Were told seats couldn't be reserved but most...continued

Every night has a different venue. So, please keep this in mind. The venue I attended was with the group-Orquesta La Moderna Tradicion. Awesome cuban music. Lots of people on the dance floor. Had a lot of fun. They serve food, but with a TON of...continued

Bill Champlin was amazing; never realized how prolific a songwriter he was. Great show where he played his songs, plus ones he wrote for other artists: Earth, Wind & Fire; George Benson; Chicago and of course the Sons of Champlin.

Excellent show. Yoshi's, either Oakland or SF is the quintessential place for jazz anywhere.

The way it was advertised made us think that Matthew would be playing with the Musical Art Quintet, which was not the case. The Quintet opened with their own set of tango/Argentine inspired music, which we really enjoyed. 3 violinists, a cellist,...continued

This was our 1st time hearing these 4 excellent musicians, and we really enjoyed their very lively set. The pianist was a virtuoso and it was amazing to watch and hear him. We will definitely make an effort to hear these musicians again...continued

Yoshi's SF is a great venue, so we always enjoy being there. We enjoyed Boca do Rio but not as much as groups more samba and bossa nova influenced.

Although the show started late (10:50 PM) Eddie Levert was exceptionally good and entertaining. My wife said it was 'wonderful' and that says a lot. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the people who attended the show were really into the music....continued

Raghu Dixit and his band, wearing colorful, Indian lungis, rocked the audience with their music and charmed them with their love.

Rita Coolidge and her band put on a great show. I went alone but got a great seat and met lovely people seated at the same table. I hope yoshi's SF is able to survive with the competition from the new SF Jazz venue on Franklin. Would really be a...continued
