Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: Vince Outlaw , Social Media Marketing ManagerPosted on: April 10, 2015
This is Jazz! 2015, a partnership between the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and San Diego's Jazz 88.3, continues Saturday, April 11 at 4PM in Carlsbad City Library's Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium with a celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month with San Diego's 2011 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition Finalist Joshua White and his Quartet and Jazz 88.3 host Vince Outlaw present "San Diego Jazz Legends and Young Lions".



San Diego Jazz has both a rich history and a currently thriving, invigorating and nationally recognized scene, or as San Diego Magazine recently characterized, “the renaissance of West Coast Jazz is happening right here and now." We'll introduce and explore the artists, venues, organizations, media outlets, both past, present, and emerging while hearing music from one of the top Jazz Quartets led by pianist Joshua White, who none other than Herbie Hancock described as a "cutting-edge innovator".
