Get into the spirit of the holidays with a swinging group of jazz and music critics that not only write about music, but are also accomplished musicians. The Jazz Scribes are just what the name implies, a group of writers who play for the love of music. They will be the opening band for a rousing evening of music billed as “Jazz and Funk Night” at King King in Hollywood on December 3.
The group consists of; Jazz journalist Scott Yanow, who is one of the most respected jazz journalists in the business on tenor sax, clarinet and melodica; West Coast regional editor for Classical Voice North America, Richard S. Ginell, on keyboards; Jazz journalist and monster drummer, A. Scott Galloway; Buddy Sampson, publisher of The Scoop LA.com, on bass. “They bring fun back to jazz,” said former Venice Magazine journalist Jan Holland about The Jazz Scribes. Yarrow laughed, “Now the audience can be critics for the critics”.
The evening’s line-up also includes, Electric Violinist, Rachel Grace and Saga Strings, plus the dynamic R&B group, Crosstown Traffic, featuring the sensational vocals of Myra Washington. Wear your dance shoes! Rachel Grace is one of the hottest and most unique artists in the current classical and dance music scene.
This promises to be a jam packed evening of great live music and fun benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. A full-bar is available. All guests are encouraged to bring new and unwrapped toys for the Toy Drive.
