Unappreciated Cultural Mainstay (The Jazz Room) in 2019
Jazz, even at its most frenetic, has always been romantic. In the dimly lit, cozy auditorium, the quartet bops along. Couples scoot closer, sipping cocktails from the bar. This concert series, organized by the nonprofit Jazz Arts Initiative, presents tributes to such jazz greats as John Coltrane and Duke Ellington. You don’t have to know a lot about the genre to appreciate the concerts. And at $15 a ticket, becoming a regular isn’t a problem, either.
