Jazz Around Town: So the snow didn't all come in December! Here's some jazz to melt it....

Tamir HendelmanWriting this post after shoveling out our driveway (and digging my car out on Park Ave.) for nearly two hours is painful, but it is a labor of love. 

The Tamir Hendelman concert on Sunday, part of the Exodus to Jazz series was great! I leave you with an image (compliments of jazz image maker John Herr) from that gathering at the ETJ's new venue, the Reformation Lutheran Church on Chestnut (hence the pulpit in the background...).

So here are the listings for the next seven days. Enjoy!  Now where did I put ibuprofen....?
