Any Southern California jazz heads out there? The Central Avenue Jazz Festival is happening today and tomorrow.
I plan to be there tomorrow and check out saxophonist Charles McPherson, who played with Charles Mingus throughout the ’60s.
Wish I could hit it today to see Arthur Blythe, but tonight is Yancey Arias’s charity poker tournament in Malibu, and I’m getting my head ready for that.
(Thanks to Dougfp for the heads-up about the festival.)
