Joanne Gilbert, a new (and already active!) Friends of Classic Las Vegas member, told us about a Jazz Event This Sunday which is sponsored by the Las Vegas Jazz Society
It’s part of a series, ”Tribute to the Las Vegas Jazz Masters” – this time honoring, “Elder Statesman”, Jimmy Wilkins, trombonist, conductor, writer, arranger, alumnus of the Count Basie Orchestra, Clark Terry Big Band, and groups led by Illinois Jacquet, Teddy Wilson and Dizzy Gillespie, among many others. He has played with all the top players in American and Las Vegas Jazz History. Las Vegas is fortunate to be the home of many treasures of jazz history–their role in the evolving culture of our city is invaluable!
If you’re a “Friend of Classic Las Vegas”, or anyone interested in the history and community of our town, particularly the people who made it happen – and/or a music lover, then you don’t want to miss this event.
It’s at Sonny’s Tavern, 4145 S. Grand Canyon Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89147 (215/Flamingo).
Admission is $10/LVJS Members or $15/general admission.
Sunday, August 24 at 2:00 p.m., at Sonny’s Tavern:
