Jazz Choices For The Extended Weekend
Friday, July 1, brings an unusual amount of choices for the jazz lover. Those lucky enough to have planned ahead can attend the sold-out Anat Cohen Quartet show at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in La Jolla; tickets are still available for the Gilbert Castellanos group at Dizzy's and those seeking a more R&B flavored approach can catch vocalist Rachelle Ferrell at Anthology in Little Italy.
On Saturday July 2 ,at 8 p.m. Dizzy's carries on with virtuosic pianist Mikan Zlatcovich fronting a trio featuring Rob Thorsen and Russell Bizzett on bass and drums.
Sunday, July 3, Dizzy's is hosting an early Independence Day celebration, from 3 - 6 p.m. For a mere $5, you can revel in the traditional New Orleans second-line street grooves of the Euphoria Brass Band, (2 sets), an extra $5 snags you a plate of BBQ, and for another $5 you can whet your whistle with an ice-cold beer or a glass of wine. Bring the family !
