The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, September 12th, 2014, featuring Ernie Andrews, where he will receive the sixth-annual L.A. Jazz Treasure Award.
From the LACMA website:
LACMA and the Los Angeles Jazz Society proudly present the sixth-annual L.A. Jazz Treasure Award to vocalist Ernie Andrews. With an historic career that parallels the vast and rich history of L.A. jazz, Andrews began his work winning an amateur show at the Lincoln Theater on Central Avenue. From their hit singles, followed tours with the Harry James Band, recordings with Cannonball Adderly, and ultimately a long solo career that has spanned over 75 years. Other notable collaborations have included Gene Harris, Ray Brown, Benny Carter, Kenny Burrell, and the Capp-Pierce Juggernaut.
Jazz at LACMA starts every Friday night at 6pm in the BP Grand Pavilion. Tickets are free, no reservations required, but the earlier you show up the better. Parking is available underneath LACMA or across the street (and that might cost you a little bit).
Food options, as well as Sangria, Beer and other adult beverages (and non-adult beverages) will be on sale. Ray and Stark Bar will be open as well. LACMA has started to ask that we not bring outside alcohol, or glass bottles to the event. The food trucks along Wilshire Avenue will be there until an hour or two before showtime. You can also bring your own picnic, as well as your own chair or blankets.
