The Jazz Foundation of America presents a pop-up mini-festival of high-spirited jazz. One set each from the Ed Cherry Trio, featuring a special appearance from saxophonist Dayna Stephens, and then the great Wayne Escoffery. Cherry makes his return to Word Up under the JFA gig fund program, and Escoffery is a neighborhood resident. Each will be blazing a hot set among the books, before heading downtown to headlining gigs.
