Waited way too long for him to perform only 4/5 songs. The show was very short. Did not expect the DJ to play for what seemed like forever; did not pay to see the performers before Al B. Sure-didn't appreciate that. His show was to supposed to begin at 10:30p; he did not perform until almost 1 a.m.- completely unacceptable. We found this wait too much. Enjoyed the few moments with Al.B. Sure; did not enjoy the lack of organization from Yoshi's.

The quartet was fabulous! The ensemble was fantastic, these guys have been playing together for a while, or so it seemed. There were some original "riffs", mainly on the bass, playing in the upper part of the double bass. Mr. Parker is a true incredible musician. He also came up with some very entertaining stories, which was greatly received.
I was quite disappointed by the amplification in the hall. Specifically the bass sounded very muddled. Distorted. It was hard to tell the exact pitch many times during this concert.
So I would definitely give the quartet "high five", but the quality of the bass sound was poor. I hope Yoshi will correct that.

Beginning as a drummer in the seminal '60s San Francisco rock band The Charlatans, and continuing with his unique and legendary Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Dan Hicks is widely acknowledged as one of the defining figures in American roots music.

June 4, 2013 at 8:00pm: Ron Sexsmith
In a world of workaday singer-songwriters mired in vacuous self-regard, news of a new Ron Sexsmith record can only gladden the heart of those who care about deftly poetic, gently affecting songs that perfectly distil the pitfalls of being human. Especially when that record pairs him again with the producer who, for two decades, has framed his music in its most sympathetic surroundings.
June 7-8, 2013 at 10:00pm: Peabo Bryson
Peabo Bryson is among the world’s most dynamic and gifted vocal talents. Over the course of a career spanning from the mid-`60s but truly igniting in the `70s, the 2x Grammy® winner has amassed a fan base, critical acclaim, gold albums and an avalanche of awards by being one of the truly best friends a good song ever had...many of which he composed himself. From ballads that gracefully continued the legacy of sweet soul music such as “Feel the Fire” and “I’m So Into You” to chart-topping pop hits such as “If Ever You’re in My Arms Again” and “Can You Stop The Rain,” and a plethora of duet collaborations with artists ranging from singers Celine Dion (“Beauty & The Beast”), Regina Belle (“A Whole New World”) both songs of which also won Oscars®; to Melissa Manchester (“Lovers After All”), instrumentalists Kenny G (“By The Time This Night is Over”) and Jim Brickman (“My Heart Belongs To You”), Peabo Bryson has proven himself as the consummate vocal professional.

Co-sponsored by Center for New Music SF
Didier Petit: cello, founder of the band
Xu Fengxia: guzheng, voice
Sylvain Kassap: bassclarinet
Miya Masaoka: koto
Larry Ochs: tenor, sopranino saxophones
The artistic goal of The East-West Collective is to combine the contemporary sounds and forms of new jazz with the traditional sounds and sense of time and duration developed over centuries in Eastern music; all blended into a unique musical universe, rife with contemporary improvisational influences and forms. "East West Collective" completed (April 2012) a successful first meeting in France that included four well-received concerts. These first concerts and rehearsals in France were used to explore compositional affinities and improvisational tendencies, and for getting to know each other musically, since band members represent many diverse cultures and languages. The plan now: to solidly establish East-West music as it is conceived in this configuration, with tours in USA and Europe in 2013.
