Triple-Axe Jazz 

Marking their fifteenth year as the nation's steadfast preachers of the Gospel of Django Reinhardt, the fleet-fingered string-slingers of the Hot Club of San Francisco celebrate the recent release of their ninth CD, Yerba Buena Bounce, at Yoshi's on Monday. With no fewer than three guitarists grooving front and center, plus a steady-thumping acoustic bassist and a deeply lyrical violinist, the quintet channels the high-times spirit of Gypsy swing and other string-rich jazz modes of the 1930s with an infectious exuberance that smokes much of what passes for upbeat jazz today. 8 and 10 p.m., $10.
