I'll be visiting the Bay Area and Northern Cal the first two weeks of October. One thing I'm going to do (after a NY/SF Giants game 10/3... yeah you still got fans back home) is check out the music scene. In particular clubs that would feature jazz,blues,funk. Although an East Coast cat I'm one of those who wore out LP's by groups like Sons of Champlain, Cold Blood, Sly, The Electric Flag, and of course Tower of Power. Any insights as to what to expect from the scene today and maybe even info on open jams would be great. Your area supplied much of the soundtrack to my life. It's been so long since I've visited I need a re-vaccination. I'm looking forward to the visit. Thanks.

For straight-up jazz, check out Yoshi's which has a location in Oakland and a newer one in San Francisco. They have different stuff every day of the week that ranges from bands playing older 50's/60's style stuff to newer more abstract stuff. Also maybe look into the Jazz School in downtown Berkeley.

I don't know about blues or funk, for funk it might depend on what bands are touring through town.
