Dear Friends and Fellow Jazz Lovers,
Long a part of the Detroit jazz scene, world class drummer, Jerry McKenzie was the driving force for more than 10 years behind the Stan Kenton Jazz Orchestra. For those too young to remember, that Kenton band was the most innovative, exciting, and influential big band of its time. Now, for the past eight years, Jerry has been presenting jazz to the metro Detroit jazz community on Thursday evenings. It is the Jerry McKenzie’s Just Jazz Trio with a different featured guest artist each week.
Now it is my turn to be featured guest artist. Yes, I will be playing vibes with the Jerry McKenzie Just Jazz trio this Thursday, June 5th. Please join us!
The gig is at Nikola’s, 25225 Telegraph Rd. Just north of Ten Mile Rd. On the west side of the street. [masked]-4695. There is no cover charge. The food is great. Gig time: 7PM to 9:30PM.
I would love to see you there!
