2nd Annual Bay Area JazzPoetry Festival 

When: Sat., April 26, 7-10 p.m. 2008
Price: $20

Those who lived in the EastBay during the early 1990s may remember tenor saxophonist Jessica Jones for leading music mentor programs for teens and kids' jazz workshops at Ashkenaz. Now based in New York, Jones still leads workshops when she's not recording or gigging with her own quartet, and is currently doing research for a suite based on her German-Jewish roots. This Saturday, April 26, the Jessica Jones Quartet and poet Arisa White will headline the 2nd AnnualBay Area JazzPoetry Festival, on a bill that also features spoken-word singer Lisa B., the Yancie Taylor Quartet, and the protean jazz ensemble UpSurge!At the Hillside Club (2286 Cedar St., Berkeley). 7 p.m., $20.
