Sometimes you just want to sit down and listen to live jazz. Starting at 6:30PM many nights, you can drop in and listen to student jazz concerts at The Jazz School in Berkeley.
The basement concert room of the school is adjacent to the Jazz Cafe, about a half block from the Addison/Shattuck exit of the Berkeley BART station, right near Berkeley Rep.
The night I was there, I enjoyed hearing a piano player accompanying a procession of young jazz singers. I left during the set break, after which a jazz ensemble was to perform.
Most nights are free, including a special event this Sunday, Jazz Search West 2013 talent search.
