Is It Any Good?

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, November 28th, featuring the Frank Vardaros Jazz Orchestra.

But this is it for 2014!  You’ll have to wait till next Summer for the series to begin again!

From the LACMA website:

Steeped in the rich tradition of such jazz orchestras as Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, and Count Basie, renowned trumpeter Frank Vardaros captures the brilliance of this music and provides a modern reincarnation of the great jazz orchestras. Vardaros has performed with Frank Foster, Ann Margaret, Nick Brignola, Clark Terry, and Arturo Sandoval at venues such as the Boston Globe Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, and the Marbella Spain Jazz Series.

Jazz at LACMA starts every Friday night at 6pm at the Los Angeles Times Central Court. 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.
