Jazz Up Close
Tonight’s the last show in Matt’s & my jazz subscription at the Kimmel Center. After four concerts tracing “The Roots of Jazz” to various musical traditions (in this series, represented by New Orleans musicians), series organizer Danilo Perez will lead an ensemble in a concert suggesting a jazz future influenced by latin music. The rest of the shows have been quite good—-two of them, in fact, have been fantastic!—-so I’m looking forward to rounding out the season.
It reminds me, though. I should finally take the time to look at next season’s brochure. The official announcement of the Kimmel’s 07/08 season was back on March 1st, and my copy of the brochure has been sitting on the couch for at least 3 weeks. It’s time to take a look-see and choose what concerts I’d like to see, and which series might interest me.
