Another Great Night in Harlem


The Jazz Foundation of America will hold its fifth Great Night in Harlem fundraiser concert at the Apollo Theater on Thur. May 4th. For details see the invitation here. As usual it should be a great show, featuring fantastic musicians like Clark Terry, Ron Carter, James Blood Ulmer, Gary Bartz, and Jimmy McGriff. It should truly be a great night of music for a very worthy cause. JFA has been an incredible resource for musicians displaced by Katrina, but their relief efforts have been costly.

Anyone who orders tickets in the next week (4/13-4/19), and e-mails confirmation to jb.feedback at yahoo by 4/20 will get a grab bag of books with my compliments, while supplies last. Just allow me a couple weeks to get it organized. This is my offer, independent of JFA. Swing on.
