Recently, Jose DaCosta, the main man behind the great Exodus to Jazz series announced that tickets were on sale for the 2011-2012 Season of ETJ. There are some great artists here coming from a number of diverse directions—some are new to ETJ, some familiar to those of you who have caught an ETJ concert  in the past. I'll just list them here, but you should go over to the Exodus to Jazz website to get more details and click through to some more information about the artists, including video.
