Latin Jazz Comes to East 54 This Thursday

I'm brushing up on this Thursday's concert and learned that Guillo Carias' resume reveals some impressive brushes with old school jazz fame: Sammy Davis, Jr., Dave Brubeck, Celia Cruz and Chuck Mangione to name a few. The latin-jazz bandleader has even played with one of New York's original Mambo Kings, Tito Rodriguez. The Guillo Carias Trio is just one of many diverse and eclectic shows you'll see this here at the 5:40 Summer Music Series. Join us after work Thursday.

Thursday's Concert Postponed to June 10th

Of course the summer evenings are bound to unstable weather patterns, but tomorrow night looks particularly bad. So Tess from the Artscenterand I have decided to postpone Jonathan Byrd's show to next Thursday, June 10th. Think positive: Think clear skies with a chance of chilling and enjoying some great local music.
