Straight-ahead Jazz

A familiar name to longtime San Francisco jazz fans, sax man Noel Jewkes, has performed and recorded with just about everyone in the Bay Area. John Hendricks, Wesla Whitfield, Mary Stallings, Lavay Smith, Mimi Fox, Larry Vuckovich and Paula West are among his many collborators.

He’s been at it for decades; he was even onstage at the legendary Fillmore Street nightspot Bob City and played a role in the late-’60s San Francisco rock scene.

Tonight he’s playing pure jazz with his own quartet, appearing at 8 and 10 p.m. at the city’s best jazz club, Jazz at Pearl’s, left, at 256 Columbus Ave.
