CSUEB Annual Night of Jazz

I went to the Cal State East Bay's (IT IS CSU HAYWARD-THAT IS WHAT MY DEGREE SAYS) Annual Night of Jazz at the famous Jazz Club Yoshi's in Oakland.  The proceeds from the concert go to the program. It was a great night of really good music by the students in the jazz program. They had two special guests sit in- singer Tiffany Austin and sax player Teodross Avery. Both were super awesome:

Singer Tiffany Austin-She has a great voice

CSUEB graduate student Mario Silva. Silva and his trumpet can be heard on several tracks off Morgan Hertiage's album "Strickly Roots" which won the Grammy for Best Reggae Album in February.

It was a great evening filled with great music, I can't wait for next year's concert.
