Jazz Stories presents: "The Jazz Guitar - From Dixie to Brazil"  
 
Join us when America's most original music meets its most popular instrument. Songs and stories from Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, Pat Metheny and BB King. Special guest Bob Schleeter (Guitar – natch. And super-good talker, too.), Cayce Carnahan (Trumpet), Teerth Gonzalez (Percussion) and Richard Leiter (Keys/Vocals/Stories).
 
Free treats, as always. (In this day and age!) And 7:30PM, as always. But come early because it always goes SRO!  

Pegasus Books presents the increasingly popular series Jazz Stories!

People love hearing jazz...and hearing about it. Musicians like Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Buddy Rich were original, colorful characters artists who said and did astonishing things. Fortunately their colleagues cared enough to document these moments in stories and pictures and we now have a rich repository of photos and anecdotes about these artists, and about the American songwriters and composers who created the raw material of jazz. 

Jazz Stories is a performance of the songs of jazz from its most creative periods intensified with illuminating, funny and touching true stories of the time.

Come hear music and jazz stories you probably have never heard...but will never forget. Hosted by Richard Leiter.
