|So are they playing at Frost Park or Woody's? Or am I just too tired to comprehend....|

|We're playing at Woody's. Woody's has been a sponsor of the Frost Park chalk off. Eric probably wanted to show some pictures of people enjoying the sunshine since it's been a while since we've seen any.
In honor of the 1st day of spring, we will perform the jazz classic "Up Jumped Spring" by Freddie Hubbard. I might even to convince the other guys to play "Equinox" by John Coltrane.
We're on from 7 to 10 - great food, great drinks, great jazz, no cover charge.
Eric B. Thanks for the post!

|Thanks for the tip. It's always a great, friendly show, even for those who may be afraid they might not like, or understand jazz. You perfom so well together, and shine as you trade-off solos. I will try to get there at least in time to catch the last set. BTW, Bill, I heard great feedback on a recent Kevin England gig with friend Mike Nelson.
Between Woody's on one side of the Thea Foss, and Johnny's on the other side hosting Maia Santell's band the last Sunday of each month, we are fortunate to have some live jazz happening in Tacoma.

|Art Blakey is so right. You should have seen how dusty I was before I started playing jazz!.
