The San Francisco Concert is a live album by flautist Hubert Laws recorded at the Paramount Theatre in California in 1975 and released in 1977 on the CTI label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "This live set finds flutist Hubert Laws both looking backwards toward his best CTI recordings and ahead to his generally abysmal output for Columbia... Backed by a huge string orchestra, Laws plays quite well, uplifting the material and doing what he can with the charts".[2]
