The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, July 18th, 2014, featuring Henry “Skipper” Franklin Quintet.
From the LACMA website:
Bassist Henry “The Skipper” Franklin’s prolific career began with Willie Bobo and Archie Shepp. Franklin rose to fame working with Hugh Masakela, appearing on his number-one single, “Grazing in the Grass.” He has recorded numerous albums as a leader and has also worked closely with Gene Harris & the Three Sounds, Freddie Hubbard, Bobbi Humphrey, and Hampton Hawes. Franklin has performed in festivals and clubs around the world, including the Monterey International Pop Festival in June of 1967, which was immortalized in the D. A. Pennebaker documentary film of the event, Monterey Pop.
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.
