Featured review from Robert S.Red Velvet

Sara Gazarek was a delightful discovery! So glad I looked into her.
Crystal clear voice, interesting phrasing and an engaging stage presence. And backed by a terrific trio. I didn't expect such a full house for a name I'd never heard of but there were many rabid fans. I may have just become one!
Quotes & Highlights
“Rhythms are changing at Yoshi’s San Francisco. The six-year-old Fillmore Street landmark first gained its reputation as a jazz club, with a longer history in the genre going back to the early 1970s in the East Bay. But now, the popular venue anchored in the heart of the evolving Fillmore District is becoming increasingly known for the eclectic array of performers who play on the Yoshi’s San Francisco stage and entertain audiences with a wide range of musical styles. Peter Murphy — dubbed the ‘king of goth’ — recently played at Yoshi’s San Francisco, as have Erykah Badu, the Winery Dogs, the Dramatics and Graham Nash.” —DiningOut

Schedule of performers:
April 30, 2014: International Jazz Day With TIZER
Celebrate International Jazz Day with all-star jazz-fusion band led by keyboardist-composer Lao Tizer and featuring Chieli Minucci (Special EFX) on guitar and Karen Briggs (Yanni) on violin. The group is driven by an explosive mix of jazz, rock, classical and jam-band influences and Afro-Cuban and world rhythms. Downbeat, the first studio album by TIZER, throws down a high-powered collection of fresh instrumental music from one of the rising stars of the world-fusion genre. TIZER has spurred comparisons of a modern twist to the ‘70s and early ‘80s heyday of jazz fusion, when trailblazing ensembles like Return To Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra and Weather Report set the aesthetic standard.
May 4, 2014: Halie Loren & Mads Tolling
International jazz singer and songwriter with Grammy-winning violinist Mads Tolling. The first thing you notice is that voice: gorgeous, graceful and somehow earthy and ethereal at once. It is an instrument perfectly matched to the songwriting talents of the artist who channels it — Halie Loren.
May 7, 2014: Jeff Coffin Featuring Futureman
Jeff Coffin & The Mu’tet is led by Jeff Coffin, saxophonist from Dave Matthews Band. Also a composer, educator and three-time Grammy-winner, you likely also know Coffin from his 14 years with the genre-defying Bela Fleck & the Flecktones (1997-2010). Also featuring Roy “Futureman” Wooten on drums (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, five-time Grammy winner)
May 14, 2014: The Beth Custer Ensemble
The Beth Custer Ensemble is a veritable crème de la crème of Bay Area musicians, including Jan Jackson on drums, (Will Bernard’s Motherbug, Black Pole), guitarist-vocalist David James (AfroFunk Experience, The Coup, Spearhead), Chris Grady on trumpet (Tom Waits, Grassy Knoll, Jewel), Vicky Grossi on bass (Mitch Marcus, Bitches Brew), vocalist Diana Mangano (Jefferson Airplane) and Beth Custer, clarinets/vocal (Club Foot Orchestra, Trance Mission, Eighty Mile Beach, Clarinet Thing).
May 21-22, 2014: Jane Monheit
A gifted jazz and cabaret vocalist, Monheit’s sense of liberation is apparent throughout The Heart Of The Matter, the Grammy-nominated vocalist’s ninth studio album. It can be felt in her wide-ranging choice of material, in the unique arrangements, and in her own fearless performances and interpretations. The diverse and very personal set of songs includes both familiar standards and compositions by Lennon/McCartney, Randy Newman, two songs by Ivan Lins, recorded in the original Portuguese, and, for the first time, a Monheit original.
May 24, 2014: Ray Parker Jr.
While he is perhaps best known for the No. 1 smash hit “Ghostbusters,” Ray Parker, Jr. has enjoyed quite a versatile career, not only as a much sought-after guitarist, but with a number of other hits to his credit, as a performer, songwriter and producer.
