Man About Town

Man, as in mankind, of course.  Here are just a couple items of interest for SF-Bay Area folk this weekend:

Legendary jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell is over at Yoshi's in San Francisco, Thursday through Sunday.  Kenny's career spans nearly the entire second half of the 20th Century and he is still one of the most vital and energetic performers of this music out there.  I am headed to the first set Thursday night and will post a review.

Also, this is the last weekend to catch the Oakland Museum of California's EXCELLENT
Birth of the Cool: California Art, Design, and Culture at Midcentury exhibit.  If you are a fan of modern design, art, or music a visit to this show is a must.  It is really well done.  The museum deserves your patronage.  The Karl Benjamin paintings alone are worth the price of admission.
