Jazz Around Town: While technology may fail me, the jazz goes on ....
Jazz Around Town: Find an air-conditioned space to hear some hot jazz

Jazz Around Town: No summer doldrums here...

I know, there is so much going on around town that it's becoming difficult to find time to get some jazz in. If you can fit it in, here is what I could find live jazz-wise for the next seven days. If you know of something I missed, let me know.  

Hope you're having a great summertime!

RIJF alums Soulive are playing the Boulderfest on Saturday night and Filthy Funk, also RIJFers, are at Dubland Underground on Wednesday night.

Just hear the passing of vocalist Janet Beman over the weeken. My show at the Strath Thursday July 21 from 7-10pm will be dedicated to her. I found out about it listening to 90.1 this morning...I had lost my phone. God bless her!
