1001 Black Men–#98

Just a little tribute to Oakland’s long history as a host to America’s Jazz greats. In the middle of the century there was Sweet’s Ballroom, where musicians of all ethnicities played to largely segregated crowds. Sweet’s is still around today, but the “it” destination for today’s jazz lovers is Yoshi’s, in Oakland’s historic Jack London Square. Yoshi’s serves up jazz, sushi, and drinks to an enthusiastic crowd that reflects the full diversity of Bay Area music lovers, and it’s a favorite destination of out-of-town fans, as well.
