You don't want to miss this party of a concert! Of course, there will be fabulous traditional jazz. We'll also celebrate Trinidad's annual Carnival celebration (which begins on February 24 this year), and Jerry will join forces with Ellen Redman to offer American composer M. Lewis Spratlan an 80th birthday gift--a performance of Piccolosophy, a work he wrote for piano and piccolo in 2005. Come for the music and stay for the cake!
