Jazzfest Changes




If you were looking forward to tomorrow night’s Tri-C JazzFest concert at PlayhouseSquare’s Allen Theatre with the Dave Brubeck Quartet and jazz singer Kurt Elling — hold onto that excitement and your ticket.

Legendary pianist Brubeck, whose landmark album Time Out was the first jazz record to sell a million copies, is a bit under the weather, and since he’s 88 — and you know, there’s all that swine flu going around! — he was advised not to travel.

The entire show, with both Brubeck’s ensemble and Elling, has been rescheduled for June 6 at the same location.

There’s also been a change to Saturday night’s Allen Theatre show headlined by smooth-jazz sax player Dave Koz. Vocalist Randy Crawford, slated to perform with opening act, keyboardist Joe Sample, has canceled due to illness. Go to tricpresents.com for updates and ticket info. —Anastasia Pantsios
