Dallas Jazz Scene is alive at The Amsterdam Bar on Monday's

The Amsterdam Bar in Dallas is not a secret to the hard-core jazz afficianados, but for anyone else this place may be new news! Located by Fair Park  on Exposition it is a happening place.  Every Monday night at 9 p.m. Dallas’ own Shelley Carroll (s),  Jonathan Fisher (b),  Andrew Griffith (d ) along with various talented keyboard players and a plethora of jazz musicians take the reins for 3 hours of straight ahead jazz. If you want a listening lesson in great jazz or just wish to venture out for a new experience in the world of music, then the Amsterdam Bar is where it happens.  This narrow bar fills up quickly so get there early.

 An announcement from this exciting jazz club just hit the networking sites today January 17, 2009.

"Amsterdam Bar Dallas - Ladies and gentleman: We are proud to announce that Grammy award winning, former Arts Magnet alum, Roy Hargrove, will be our special guest for tomorrow's Badass Jazz Night with Shelley Carroll. Witness the Jazz wizardry of this very rare event....just posted from Amsterdam Bar"

Check it out any Monday night.  You will not be disappointed in one of Dallas' best kept secrets!

    Hi, Carolyn. Great article. I love jazz and will have to check out the Amsterdam Bar.

    I also wanted to let you know that John Lewis is interested in talking to you, but I don't see any contact information for you. Please send me an e-mail at your earliest convenience, and I can get his contact information to you.
