The Bay Area jazz community has long expected that the new Yoshi's San Francisco would make its debut in grand style.

It appears those expectations will be met - even exceeded.

The second Bay Area outpost for the club - the other is in Oakland - will kick open its doors Nov. 28 with one of the genre's legends - Roy Haynes, a drummer who has set the beat for such jazz immortals as Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughan, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk.

Haynes will be appearing as part of Yoshi's Birds of a Feather Super Band, a one-night-only cast that includes vibraphonist Gary Burton, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and saxophonist Ravi Coltrane.

The opening night bill - as well as the rest of the new club's current lineup for the fall and spring - was announced at a press conference Tuesday.

Here's the schedule:

Nov. 28: Roy Haynes and the Yoshi's Birds of a Feather Super Band, featuring Gary Burton, Ravi Coltrane, Nicholas Payton, Kenny Garrett, David Kikoski and John Patitucci
