We’ve got your entertainment covered on this last weekend day before Christmas: from 3pm to 5pm, swing by Word Up for a great afternoon of jazz courtesy of the Jazz Foundation of America. We’ll have the Ed Cherry Trio in the house, featuring guitarist Ed Cherry and with Pat Bianchi on organ and Chris Beck on drums.
Jim Ferguson of Jazztimes says that Cherry “has a hip, melodic approach that is a refreshing contrast to guitarists who frequently resort to playing ‘finger music’, the execution of rapid streams of notes that serve no musical purpose other than to fill space.” See more about the band at www.edcherrymusic.com.
. . . And of course, we have a lot of used and new books that would make great gifts!
