12 Days of Sinatra and December 12th Jazz Live

12 Days of Sinatra and December 12th Jazz Live

The holidays are for family, friends….and Frank. That’s why beginning this Friday, December 1st, KSDS is bringing you “12 Days of Sinatra.” From Noon to 2PM each weekday (until Dec. 18th), the world’s foremost Sinatra experts and insiders—the men who’ve literally written the books on Frank—will bring you the music—and the stories—from each major period of Sinatra’s life and career.  And, on Frank's actual birthday, we will be celebrating Sinatra at Jazz Live. On December 12th Saxophonist Brian Levy will be bringing a stellar band to the Saville Theatre (Mikan Zlatkovich- piano, Mackensie Leighton- bass and Kevin Kanner- drums) as we will hear Sinatra classics done as instrumentals. There are a few pairs of tickets available for only $60 but you need to call 619-388-3301 or e-mail us info@jazz88.org right away because we will sell them out.

So join us each weekday at Noon Pacific up until December 18th for “12 Days of Sinatra” and be there at Jazz Live on Dec. 12th.
