Jazz @ Columbia Station
*** Bring a friend - Organizer is Performing *** Every Tuesday, the organizer puts together a rotating cast of musicians to perform all the songs on an album followed by a jam session. The album of the week is a concept designed to promote the aesthetic of listening to an album straight through, as it was intended, which is lost on the younger generation with the singles-based music culture. Come out and support live jazz, always straight ahead, no smooth jazz. This website will be updated with the album of the week and musicians once it's set. A local favorite, Columbia Station is the go-to place for live jazz, no cover, and a family like community atmosphere on Tuesday nights. Please note: their pours are generous! Great place to get drinks after dinner! From their website: Columbia Station has a down-to-earth vibe that's fully unpretentious. The wide windows across the front open up when things get hot inside, which is often. Music pours out onto the street coaxing passers-by. The atmosphere is relaxed enough that people feel comfortable dropping by, whether they're decked out in club attire or lounging in jeans and sneakers. The black ceiling with terra-cotta accents and warm amber light suffusing the place lends a homey feel. A sculpture of melded and intertwined tubas, trumpets, and trombones hangs on the back wall, identifying Columbia Station as a home for true jazz and blues fans. Couples and groups of friends fill the tables along the walls, while die-hard music fans take the seats at the bar to listen to groups like Sahara and the Bruce Robinson Quartet. Artist bios:
