Jazz Around Town: By the time the next 7 days of jazz are over, I mark a milestone (or was that millstone?)

image from www.makemymood.com The envelope from AARP arrived in the mail last week with the customary offer of membership and a temporary card upon one's hitting the big 5-0 next Wednesday. Yes, one-half a century. Geez!!

Well, moving on, there's a lot going over the coming 7 days, hope you can get out to hear some! I just don't feel up to hearing the strains of Happy Birthday to You ... unless perhaps done in the bossa nova style?
