Is It Any Good?

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, August 8th, 2014, featuring Kamasi Washington and the Next Step.

From the LACMA website:

Bandleader and saxophonist Kamasi Washington is an exciting young player on the jazz scene today. The award-winning saxophonist is also a member of the groups the Gerald Wilson Bing Band and Luckman Jazz Orchestra and has performed with artists ranging from Billy Higgins and Wayne Shorter to Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, and Raphael Saadiq. Washington has performed at such festivals as the Playboy Jazz Festival, Detroit Jazz Festival, and Radio Music Awards.

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.
