Larry and Krew were fabulous! I've been a fan for over 40 years and he's only gotten better. Unfortunately, the table service at Yoshis is so terrible - typically a 45 minute wait to receive a beverage and that's AFTER being forced to wait outside...continued

My second time seeing Sara at a Yoshi's and she was excellent both times. She's got a beautiful, clear voice and interprets music in interesting ways. Her band really supplies wonderful arrangements for tunes ranging from Duke Ellington to Ben...continued

I'd found AJ Croce's first cd at a record store ages ago and have enjoyed it but I'd not had the opportunity to see him live. Guy's an amazing musician! We sat right up front and got to watch him work his lightning hands on both piano and guitar,...continued

Nice venue especially when not too crowded. Competent middle of the road playing with some good side guitar from Dark Star Orchestra members. Not bad for a Tuesday night.

Pharaoh Sanders has been peculiar for a long time. Given the incoherent performance I saw by him 20 years ago my expectations were low. Something of a legend though and with some good recent reviews, it seemed a good excuse to finally make it to...continued

Yoshi's is always a great place to be and The YellowJackets brought out the best it offers. The band was tight, yet experimental, giving us fusion at its finest. So nice to have Oakland Local Will Kennedy from Skyline High hittin' the finest of...continued

Kim Nalley is always a delight, but with her powerhouse quartet headlining Houston Pearson, her performance couldn't be beat1

Doc Severinsen & the San Miguel Five were more Latin than Jazz and was terrific! We were sorry it was over, and look forward to going back often

Awesome show by Mr Roy Ayers. His is a fantastic artist and at 71 years of age can STILL get the crowd up on their feet.

This is a baaaaad young brother. If you haven't seen/heard his music, you are doing your ears a serious disservice.
