I wore a skirt and top. You will see people dressed both up and down as some people may have just walked up and bought a ticket , while others have planned for months and made a date of it. .

The jazz was a little "free" for my taste. Objectively, Yoshis took a long long time to get the full crowd inside... it didn't go smoothly and the show started 30 minutes late.

Yoshi's San Francisco is a beautiful venue. The sound system is very
good and viewing the stage is good from just about anywhere. The food and drink are good and reasonably priced.

Roy Hargrove was absolutely mind bending on the Coronet and...continued

Roy Hargrove and his quintet were astounding, with the 2nd set being more intense (and really taking off from where the 1st set ended). The drummer and bass player pushed the horn players and pianist to their absolute limit and the audience was...continued

Description

Trumpeter Roy Hargrove is a multi-Grammy winner with his own albums Directions in Music (with Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker) and Crisol (A Cuban music all-star offering), he’s also been nominated for a wide variety of other albums, including this year (2009) with his Roy Hargrove Quintet.

To add even more fire to his already incendiary quintet, saxophone titan Pharoah Sanders joins Roy for their first-ever musical meeting. On one of Roy’s finest straight ahead records, 1994’s With The Tenors of Our Time, he played with Joe Henderson, Stanley Turrentine, Johnny Griffin, Branford Marsalis, Joshua Redman… Now he can add Pharoah Sanders to that list.

At 36, trumpeter Roy Hargrove has firmly established himself as among the premier players in jazz and beyond. Ever-stretching into more challenging and colorful ways to flex his musical chops, Hargrove has left indelible imprints in a vast array of artful settings. During his tenure on the Verve label alone, he has recorded an album with a hand-picked collection of the world’s greatest tenor saxophonists (With the Tenors of Our Time_), an album of standards with strings (_Moment to Moment) and, in 2003, introduced his own hip hop/jazz collective The RH Factor with the groundbreaking CD Hard Groove (swiftly followed by the limited edition EP, Strength).

Hargrove has also won Grammy® Awards for two vastly different projects. In 1997, Roy’s Cuban-based band Crisol (including piano legend Jesus “Chucho” Valdes and wonder drummer Horatio “El Negro” Hernandez) won the Best Latin Jazz Performance Grammy for the album Habana. And in 2002, Hargrove, Herbie Hancock and Michael Brecker won Best Instrumental Jazz Album, Individual or Group, for their three-way collaboration Directions in Music.
