Have you had a chance to catch much of the SFJAZZ Festival? This is the last few days of what has been an outstanding and eclectic festival. I have seen McCoy Tyner, Mavis Staples, and Cecil Taylor. This week I will be seeing the Hammond B-3 Summit featuring Jimmy Smith and Joey DeFrancesco at Bimbo’s 365 on Thursday, Marian McPartland at the Herbst Theatre on Friday, and Nancy Wilson and Ramsey Lewis at Masonic Auditorium on Saturday. I will be putting together a review of this year’s festival adventures in the next couple of weeks as soon as I think up a good title. 🙂
Vocalist Carmen Lundy with special guest violinist Regina Carter will be at Yoshi’s on 11/11.
