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.
