San Francisco trumpeter Allen Smith, who died February 3 after a long illness, will be remembered and celebrated by many of the top jazz musicians in the Bay Area at a “Musician’s Tribute to Allen Smith.” It will be held at Yoshi’s at 1330 Fillmore on Sunday, April 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. There is no admission fee, but contributions will benefit the Fillmore Jazz Heritage Center, which is directed by his son Peter Fitzsimmons.
