Book some time with Livermore library's Jazz in July series

See also

More than most people, I associate jazz with libraries.
The reason is wholly personal. When I began to seriously immerse myself in the music back in the late 1980s, the library is where I went to borrow CDs to tape on cassette. I was working at the newspaper in Thousand Oaks at the time and I regularly headed over to the library on my lunch hour to peruse its fortunately extensive collection. Lots of Coltrane, Stan Getz and Bill Evans wound up in my initial collection that way.
People in the East Bay apparently share my twin passions for libraries and jazz. San Ramon’s Jazz at the Library series is expected to return with its usual September-October concerts. In the meantime, head out to the Livermore wine country for its library’s Jazz in July series.
Performances are set for 2 p.m. Sundays and admission is free.

Schedule
July 6: Jazz Noir with Dmitri Matheny
July 13: Times 4
July 20: Lee Waterman and Jazz Caliente
July 27: Mimi Fox
