Thursday 12/22: I've bolded this because this is the performance of this time: pianist Ernest Turner & saxist Stephen Riley are not to be missed by anyone in the neighborhood of C Grace in Raleigh.
Tuesday 12/27: I like students with the energy to make a music internship become a performance opportunity--young singer Qualia "Akili" Holder-Cozart deserves a listen just to see what she makes of this opportunity. I know she can sing, so why not give her a listen?
Saturday 12/31: Lotsa jazz choices: the Ariel Pocock Trio highlights the Sharp Nine annual fundraiser; pianist Jonathan Markow plays at the Beyu while people dine; Al Strong keeps C 1888 in Raleigh humming, while Peter Lamb & the Wolves do the same at C Grace. Check those websites for details--& have a lotta fun!
