The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, August 22nd, 2014, featuring Phil Ranelin Sextet.
From the LACMA website:
Phil Ranelin is loved and respected around the globe as a master trombonist of the J. J. Johnson tradition and former Freddie Hubbard sideman. He has collaborated with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Art Pepper, Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wilson, and Sarah Vaughan. Ranelin got started as a session man for Motown artists like Stevie Wonder. In 1971, along with saxophonist Wendell Harrison, Ranelin cofounded a band, magazine, and record label conglomeration known as the Tribe, which used experimental jazz as a vehicle to raise African American political consciousness.
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.
