Fillmore Street Jazz Festival


I’m a big fine woman.
I’ve got meat shakin’ on the bone.
Ev’ry time I shake,
A skinny woman loses her home.

– Brenda Boykin

I braved the really cool San Francisco summer weather on Sunday to attend the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival. There were plenty of street vendors, food, and good music along the 12-block stretch of the festival. The highlight of the festival for me was seeing Brenda Boykin bringing us her jazz, blues, and whole lot of soul. The lyrics above came from closing song, “Big Fine Woman.” I definitely look forward to seeing her again in a warmer venue soon.
