Celebrate Jazz With Bobby Jackson

When: Mon., Dec. 13 2010

You can peek inside one of the region's top jazz minds this evening, as award-winning broadcaster Bobby Jackson hosts a free Holiday Jazz Celebration in Glick Recital Hall at the Cleveland Music Settlement. Aimed at musicians and fans alike, the party begins at 6 p.m. with a potluck dinner, then segues seamlessly into an improvisational riff on the subject of holiday jazz, conducted by the mellow-piped Jackson. They don't come much more knowledgeable than this guy, who recently wound up a 19-year stint as host, musical director, and producer for 90.3-FM WCPN Ideastream. Among his circle, Jackson counts such greats as Ben Sidran, Benny Golson, and Ellis Marsalis; you can learn more about many of them on Jackson's newly launched Jazz Mind website (, which he describes as "a repository of content for professionals and lay people who seek to learn more about jazz and the business of jazz." The Music Settlement is at 11125 Magnolia Dr. on University Circle. The cost of admission is a side dish to share; RSVPs are required at 216-421-5806 ext.184. Learn more at — Cicora
