The lights are dimmed. I peer beyond the front row of saxes onto the darkened dance floor. The drummer begins a quicken intro. Sounds from Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn encourage the anxious audience as our band starts it’s first song.

The Jazz Nightlight

The jazz and Blues scene in Los Angeles is hot. Young and old musicians get together in the diverse jazz clubs around the city to elaborate on the chord changes. The clubs light up the night with brilliant tunes from the past to creative newer melodies.
