The Adam Shulman Quintet CD Release

When: Tue., June 23, 8 p.m. 2009

Recent bookings show that Yoshi's is hewing more to the jazz side of its multi-genre portfolio, while keeping an open mind of what jazz can include. Tuesday's show is a CD release party for Adam Shulman, one of the best pianists in the EastBay. He's classically trained and well respected in the jazz world, known for backing large ensembles like the Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, though he seems to favor small combos. The next night's lineup features jazz drummer and hip-hop producer Karriem Riggins, playing with a band that includes the amazing Mulgrew Miller on piano, Warren Wolf on vibes, Joe Sanders on bass, and guest DJ Pete Rock. It will be a fascinating mix of cutting-edge jazz and a more "traditionalist" style of hip-hop -- with a hard-driving rhythm section. Adam Schulman Quintet plays Tuesday, June 23, 8 p.m. $14. Karriem Riggins plays Wednesday-Thursday, June 23-24, 8 & 10 p.m. $20. At Yoshi's Oakland (510 Embarcadero W).
