Every Saturday at 7:30pm, you’ll find San Francisco’s best jazz players plying their trade in Glen Park, San Francisco’s secret gem of a neighborhood–a stop on the Crosstown Trail with its own bookshop/jazz joint, BART station, Muni stops for the 23, 35, 36, 44, 52 and J-Church lines, off ramps from I-280 and the San Jose Boulevard expressway whisking traffic through the Bernal Cut, coffee shops, taqueria, bar, Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Italian restaurants… all in a couple blocks of businesses, with beautiful Glen Canyon Park just up the street.
