Kind of Blue

Page 6 of 6

Trumpeter Khalil Shaheed alluded to that problem during a recent jam session at the 57th Street Gallery. His daughter Savannah Harris plays drums and attends Oakland Technical High School. She's seventeen now, and thinking about college. But she probably won't go for music, Shaheed said, laughing sheepishly. "She wants a job."

Update: The SFJAZZ Center will cost $60 million to construct, not $16 million, as we originally reported.

Update: The new owner of Nick's Lounge will host jazz on Sunday and Tuesday nights.
