Is It Any Good?

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night featuring The Nick Mancini Collective.

From the LACMA website:

Mancini enjoys a reputation as one of Los Angeles’s most in-demand players as both a vibraphonist and as a bandleader. He has written, produced, and recorded with Kitchen Sink (Everything but the . . . ), the Nick Mancini Collective (Live: New York), and Type II (Flexible Plan), which Cadence Magazine described as “full of drive and lyricism . . . music with pizazz and finesse. . . . There is a sense of another era embedded in this music; yet it is not dated.” Nick has performed around the world at such notable venues as Joe’s Pub, Birdland, and has played extensively in Europe.

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.
