The above photo was taken on the beach in Carmel the same weekend as the Monterey Jazz Festival. I try to get to this beach once a year as it is one of my favorite places. Hopefully, I will have more photos as soon as I get them organized.
This post is envolving as I gather more news.
Vocalist Kurt Elling will be playing The Green Mill in Chicago for New Year’s Eve. The show will be from 9-12:30. NPR’s Coast-to-Coast will be broadcasting live from 11-midnight Chicago time. The special guest will be Ed Petersen – the great tenor player. The booths/tables in front are $40 a person to reserve and will go quickly, so if you want a place to sit with an unobstructed view – call today, 773-761-7500. For all you aspiring musicians, there will be a jam session from 1-4am so bring your instruments! General admission tickets will be $20 and only available at the door.
Anita Baker has an official website now but you probably knew that already.
