Locavore jazz this week is pretty normal: check the venues/performers links & makes yer cherces.
The big event is the Art of Cool Festival free happy hour kick-off at the bar in the downtown Durham Marriott 5:30-7:30p Thursday 3/12. There will be food, drink, live music, tickets, info, & advice about choices. Take advantage of our jazziest local music fest.
Extravore Jazz to check out: amazing violinist Regina Carter at NCSU Centerstage 3/20-21. Because larger facilities are still being renovated, she appears at the more intimate Titmus Theater at three different times. The link is on page one.
More evidence of the quality of local straight-ahead jazz: guitarist Keith Ganz & trumpeter Al Strong at Sharp Nine last night. And, I'm happy with what seem to be ever-growing audiences there. Good musicians & great sound & avid listeners add up...
