My Albany neighbour and friend Andy Gilbert, jazz writer for The Boston Globe and other papers, took me to the premier jazz venue in San Francisco, Yoshi’s in Oakland, to hear a fine Brazilian singer, Claudia Villela. Her band featured Weber Iago on piano, bassist Gary Brown, drummer Celso Alberti and reed player Harvey Wainapel. One of my more memorable evenings in California. You can read Andy’s recent piece about her for the Globe here.
