One of the benefits of living in a cosmopolitan area like Oakland is the vital arts and music scene, that appears to be growing steadily as new venues open in the Uptown and Jack London Square area.   

To introduce the uninitiated into the joys of jazz, the Oakland Library has been sponsoring a "Sunday Jazz, History, and Jam Session".  This Sunday afternoon, August 17th from 3-6 p.m., you are invited to Golden Gate Public Library at 5606 San Pablo Avenue to learn about, and hear jazz.  The schedule includes a variety of activities.  From 3-4 p.m., you can hear live jazz in the form of Terrance Brewer and Group, and then be entertained about the history of jazz, which will be offered by Randy Moore from 4:30-5 p.m..  A final closeout that promises lots of fun will be an Open Jam Session from 5-6 p.m.. Here is some great news-there is no admission charge-all of the events are free!

Two more events remain in the year, one of which is Jazz in the Park in Emeryville, and the final one returns to the Golden Gate Library on August 31st to close out the season.  Interested in going?  Here are the details"  SUNDAY JAZZ, HISTORY AND JAM SESSIONS
