Steppin' Out

Spark gets around town to hear what's going on in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene. "Old time" is gaining respect from a new generation with the help of The Crooked Jades, who perform American roots music. We get an inside look at the instrument that drives the jazz band with bassist Walter Savage. Miena Yoo writes folk songs that fuse American and Korean elements and spreads her love of music by performing at nursing homes and UCSF's cancer center. And, the non-profit Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society brings jazz, classical, and world music to Half Moon Bay.
