The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tomorrow night, June 19th, 2015, featuring the Otmaro Ruiz Quartet.

From the LACMA website:

Native Venezuelan Otmaro Ruiz is regarded as one of the most sought-after keyboardists in today’s music scene. Ruiz first worked in Venezuela, and in 1989 found himself in L.A., where he joined a group of jazz greats such as Alex Acuña, Justo Almario, Abraham Laboriel. For five years he served as musical director for Dianne Reeves, and Ruiz has also worked with artists such as John McLaughlin, Tito Puente, Arturo Sandoval, Dori Caymmi, Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra, and Jon Anderson.

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.
