Ok, true enough this city doesn’t have nearly the number of jazz clubs it should.
So that’s all the more reason to check out the 17th Annual Jazz Under the Stars concert at Clark Atlanta University on Saturday at 7 p.m.
In the past artists from Patti Austin to Wynton Marsalis have played the Under the Stars concert, which is an annual scholarship benefit. This year though, things will be a little different. Among the featured artists will be Clark Atlanta’s own jazz orchestra. This band has played the major jazz shows from Montreaux to North Sea to Kool Jazz in New York. So expect big sound and straight ahead jazz classics.
Show starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at 223 James P. Brawley Drive. Tickets are $50.
