GMMC, new music venue, opened in Durham: Too see gigs go to Gpazz Live on this link:
This Week = what I'd go see if I had the energy this week if our grandkids were leaving before Friday.
- Bassist Rick Bugel with guitarist Scott Sawyer & drummer Donovan Cheatham 7p.
- Pianist Robert Griffin (aka Griffanzo) & trombonist Danny Griffin making famour & obscure standards fun 7p.
- The NC Jazz Repertory Orchestra (NCJRO) at Sharp Nine 8p. I'm overdue.
- Pianist Jonathan Markow does standards great justice at the Empress Room 7p. This may be a real night out for me.
- Al Strong at GMMc/GPAZZ Live (see above) 8p.
- Turmpeter Jim Ketch's Swingtet at Sharp Nine 8p.
- Guitarist Keith Ganz with NYC-based guitarist Steve Cardenas at Sharp Nine 8p. I love my grandkids but will be ready to celebrate their leaving.
