I live close to downtown so would prefer the city but I would attend venues in North County sometimes.
Either one is great. I just want to get out and listen to live music.
Old time, I really like Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Bill Evans. Contemporary artists James Carter, Regina Carter, Terence BlanchardJoshua redman to name a few
I love straight ahead jazz, a lot of tenor sax, since I play sax. I don't enjoy most smooth jazz. I also like R&B, gospel, blues. I have attended 20 Montreal jazz Festivals, an amazing 10 days of all kinds of jazz and world music
My name is Joanne and I moved to SanDiego from Montreal about ten years ago. I have been a jazz and blues enthusiast since I was a teenager (a while ago now). I am not a smooth jazz fan but like straight ahead jazz and blues, gospel, etc.
