Reviews for Kuumbwa Jazz Ctr

Small setting for great music – Alot of talent comes to this small place. Get there early to enjoy the food. Make it regular hangout. You will meet alot of new friends that share your similar interests. Save room for the desert but get it when you first order. The good stuff goes fast.

If JJ's in San Jose is a blues "joint", then Kuumbwa is a jazz "temple". – Hours of Worship:
Kuumbwa is refined. The crowd knows it and so do the musicians. That's why many of them return happily to play a 200-seat venue on a Monday night in Santa Cruz. (The ingenious booking of acts on their way from L.A. to the Bay Area who don't play at such small venues on the weekend doesn't hurt either.)

The Space:
Get there early and you may have to move out of the way at the door while the band brings its equipment into the room that is Kuumbwa. Yup, room. Just one. Except for the musician's little "dressing" room. If you wait for them to come and go here, you're very likely to get an autograph or even a conversation from someone like Wynton Marsalis or Ray Brown.

The Vibe:
There's high-quality sound, no smoke, little booze, and under 21s are allowed in.
