    I first came to SF in 1972 as a 19 year old more interested in checking out the rock bands than jazz but I stumbled onto Keystone Korner my first night in SF and caught McCoy Tyner. I went over the years and developed a very strong interest in jazz. I saw Art Blakey, Stan Getz, Jessica Williams, Dewey Redman, Pat Metheny and others for very little money. Was willing to take a chance on musicians I wasn't familiar with as it was so cheap. These days it is just so expensive to hear live jazz. I sometimes go to both Yoshi's but am very selective because of the cost. I'm not complaining, just saying that years ago it was easier to develop an interest in the music because it was so affordable.
