Is It Any Good?

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night featuring Mark Winkler and Cheryl Bentyne.

From the LACMA website:

Award-winning and critically acclaimed jazz vocalist/lyricist Mark Winkler pairs up with multi-Grammy Award–winning vocalist Cheryl Bentyne, a member of the Manhattan Transfer, to form a dynamic duo that examines the “West Coast Cool” jazz scene of the 1950s. Together and separately they perform songs by Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Julie London and Bobby Troup (to name a few).

Critical Jazz writes that Winkler and Bentyne are “One of the few male/female duets in vocal jazz that finds both participants working on equal footing. Cheryl Bentyne turns in her finest effort in a decade and Mark Winkler continues to wow audiences and critics alike with his spot on vocal performances which seem to grow by leaps and bounds with each subsequent release.”

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, including Haute Dogs (Sausages) or Tacos (bring the Tacos back!), Sangria, Beer and other adult beverages (and non-adult beverages) will be on sale. Ray and Stark Bar will be open as well, as well as the many food trucks along Wilshire Avenue. You can also bring your own picnic, as well as your own chair or blankets.
