The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)’s Friday night Jazz Concerts starts it’s 2015 Season tonight, Celebrating Cannonball Adderley.
From the LACMA website:
Jazz at LACMA opens its 24th season with a tribute to LACMA’s first jazz concert, which featured Julian “Cannonball” Adderley. As part of LACMA’s 50th anniversary, this special Cannoball concert features longtime drummer Roy McCurdy, trumpeter Scotty Barnhart, alto saxophonist Andrew Speight, tenor saxophonist Rickey Woodard, pianist Llew Mathews, and bassist James Leary. As one of the most popular alto saxophonists, Adderley is best remembered for his 1966 hit, “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” and his recordings with Miles Davis, including “Kind of Blue” and “Milestones.”
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.
