Any jazz lovers in here? Must be a few! If so, I wanted to 'bring you in' for a chat. Here are a few upcoming shows that you may want to check:
Arturo's Jazz Theatre & Restaurant - Jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney, May 22 - 25th. He's performing a special Miles Davis Birthday Celebration on the 25th. Should be smokin'!
Orchestra Hall - Today, May 15th 8pm. Jazz violinist Regina Carter in a musical tribute to Detroit's Black Bottom neighborhood. She hopes concert inspires research into Detroit's history.
Bakers Keyboard Lounge - 'Kids & Jazz', every Saturday, 2 - 5pm. Call ahead. Check Gerard Gibbs on Hammond B3, most Wed. nights.
Cliff Bell's - Sat. May 17th 9:30 pm local jazz guitarist Spencer Barefield. Spencer is a 'must see'.
Don't forget one of the most anticipated concerts of the year: RETURN TO FOREVER – Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and Al Di Meola at Freedom Hill, June 21st.
What shows have you seen? If you know of any upcoming shows that we should be sure not to miss, let us know! Is that Copasetic??

Jazz fan here. Wow, R2F on 6/21 - sounds terrific! I've attempted to get Regina out here to San Diego through my contacts. She is a Cass alumni. At last check, she has only 1 show scheduled for CA, and that is up north. I really appreciate the violin, everything from Ponty to Pointer(rare).

'Support WRCJ 90.9FM great jazz every night' What else is there AFTER Ed Love? Thank goodness there's a station that plays the music more than three hours a nite. Great station indeed!
Thanks Kathleen for mentioning Dennis Coffey, a real Detroit mainstay on the jazz set. Shout out to Vetalalumni and all other CT alumini..Let the music play!

Check out Jazzin on Jefferson on June 28th. This is their fifth year. Check their website for artists. Go to Jefferson East Business. org to get info. About three blocks on Jefferson are closed to traffic near the Detroit Grosse Pointe border. Suburbanites are generally angry as hell when the have to detour through the dangerous streets of Detroit. Seriously, the event is free and its a great time. Check out Marshalls bar while you're there. Get your favorite drink in a to go plastic cup...prices are way cheaper then the street vendors. The event is also dog friendly

Let's not forget the redheaded stepchild of the community, Bert's Marketplace...although he's charging $5 cover for Thursday's popular Open Mic.
I've seen magic happen on that simple stage...always amazed how basic the place looks empty, during the day.
It totally transforms at night.
Let's hope with the new cover charge it is easier to get a drink refill!

check out Cadieux Cafe on Tuesday for Jazz Night, we went for the first time last week and it was great! Kind of like stepping back in time. Not to mention the great mussels, $8 pitchers after 10 and featherbowling!
