The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts continue tonight, featuring the CJS Quintet.

From the LACMA website:

To celebrate the CJS Quintet’s 15 years together, the veteran ensemble presents 15 special-anniversary performances at 15 different venues across the country. Their “15 for 15” performances showcase the style of music for which CJSQ has been known. The CJS Quintet, which writer Don Heckman describes as “hard-driving bebop leavened with soulful blues,” evolved from the musical alliance and camaraderie between saxophonist Chuck Johnson and trumpeter James Smith.

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.
