    One of the best FREE opportunities for students (of all ages!) to learn about jazz comes around each year during the Twin Cities Jazz Festival. Typically one or more of the festival headliners holds an afternoon clinic at nearby McNally Smith College of Music; this year the festival not only will sponsor clinics with headliners Branford Marsalis and Joe Krown, but two additional clinics will take place at other festival venues in Saint Paul. There is no pre-registration -- anyone is welcome to just show up!! And with the new LRT Green Line running with free metro passes during the festival, it will be easy to ride between clinics and festival stages.

    What would have happened if eccentric genius Thelonious Monk had encountered four of the best Twin Cities jazzmen? Trumpeter Steve Kenny, pianist Peter Schimke, bassist Billy Peterson and drummer Kenny Horst first asked that question in 2010 at the Artists Quarter, and will give us some idea of the answer when they reunite at the Black Dog on Friday, June 6. And it's rumored that a familiar voice will introduce the band. (You'll be pleased and flipped!)

    "...[Ingrid Laubrock's music] is not easily pigeonholed and it takes its impulses from the most diverse genres. And this kind of refreshing versatility is exactly what counts in today's improvised music!" --Reinhard Kager

    “Tom Rainey is a player who swerves between avant-garde notions and a mainstream sensibility and when he plays the smell of invention is in the air”
    Joseph Woodard,
    L.A Times
