    hey i'm going to san fransisco for spring break with my parents and my aunt and uncle. One night we want to go out to a nice jazz club to eat and listen to good live music. I was wondering if anyone cool will be in town or if you could just make suggestions on good places to check out. Money doesn't matter to me, just the music. I will be there March 11-17.



    thanks

    For the big guns go to Yoshi's in Oakland. Just hop on the BART (subway) and it will take your there from SF. Check out their schedule online to see who's playing then.

    It's also has an adjoining Japanese restaurant for a nice pre-show dinner.

    Jazz at Pearl's - North Beach (Little Italy) - Food and jazz. More intimate.

    Enrico's - Smaller name players, but good music. Italian food. Across the street from Pearl's.

    Les Joulins Jazz Cafe - Union Square, overpriced food, but good music.

    Rassela's Jazz Cafe - No dinner, just drinks. More electric, blues, funk and Sade-type smooth hip-hop soul, but they consider themselves a jazz thing.
