One of the fine places in southern California for dining and jazz is Vitello's Jazz & Supper Club in Studio City. This Sunday night at 7:30pm they will feature the Joe Chambers Quartet for 'one night only'. Chambers is a legendary drummer and vibraphonist who started back in Philadelphia. The Quartet features Jacob Mann on piano, Darek Oles on bass, Joe Labarbara on drums and as mentioned Joe Chambers on drums and vibraphone. General admission is $25 and you can obtain tickets through http://www.ticketweb.com.
Vitello's offers traditional Italian cuisine and they have a very popular Summer Brunch each weekend that runs from 10am until 3pm. They are located on 4349 Tujunga Avenue in Studio City. You can get more information about this show and other events by calling 818-769-0905 or logging on to their website: http://www.vitellosjazz.com. Later this month, singer Mikki Purnell will have an album release party there. This is her debut album which I reviewed several weeks ago. She did an outstanding job on the recording.
As everyone knows living in southern California, that we are in the midst of a heat wave. We must all take precautions and stay healthy and safe during this period. Remember to drink plenty of water and also drink beverages such as Gatorade to help with the electrolytes. Dress comfortably, don't over excercise, stay indoors with the fan on or air conditioner if possible. Wear sunscreen and a hat if you will be outdoors for extended periods of time. Make sure your pets get plenty of water and keep them out of the sun. If you know any elderly people, check on them to make sure they are okay.
