Keystone Korner Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at the Keystone Korner in San Francisco.

The Keystone Korner at 750 Vallejo Street opened in the late 1960's taking over from a bar/club which had operated in the same building. It became a rock venue in 1969 initially providing a weekly venue for Mike Bloomfield. It's popularity grew over the next couple of years at which time the owner, Freddie Herrera, took over a larger club in Berkeley which he named the Keystone Berkeley. The Keystone Korner was sold to Todd Barkan who turned it into a jazz club. It continued as one of the Bay Areas finest jazz venues until closing in 1983. For more information and photographs see the book Keystone Korner: Portrait of a Jazz Club by Kathy Sloane.
