The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tonight, featuring the 7th Annual L.A. Jazz Treasure Award, honoring Kenny Burrell.

From the LACMA website:

LACMA and the Los Angeles Jazz Society proudly presents its seventh annual L.A. Jazz Treasure Award to guitarist Kenny Burrell, who made his recording debut with Dizzy Gillespie in 1961. Since then, his collaborations are a who’s who in jazz history. They include Oscar Peterson, Billie Holiday, Pepper Adams, Gene Ammons, Benny Goodman, Lena Horne, and many others. An important member of the L.A jazz scene, Burrell has served as director of jazz studies at UCLA since 1996.

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.
