Looking to keep it fresh with the jazz titans of old and new? Then head on over to the Angel City Jazz Festival this Sunday at 5:00pm. The evening's performers include the Richard Sears Trio and special guest jazz legend Tootie Heath. In 2009, Erica Wrightson interviewed Heath for LA Weekly about the state of jazz and Heath's continuing development as an artist. 'Neither disappointed nor intimidated by the direction of jazz and the way technology has transformed the music industry, he embraces it. "I think it's wonderful and it speeds everything up. I don't see how we've lived all these years without it."' General admission tickets run for $40.00, but students can get in for $17.00. Sweeten the deal by making it a group outing and save up to 20% on tickets.
Sunday, Oct. 6th, 4:00 - 8:45pm at John Anson Ford Amphitheatre: 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. E Los Angeles, 90068. More info here.
