The Bakersfield Jazz Workshop holds its weekly event tonight at Le Corusse Rouge. Mike Montano will be the Featured Artist. Ever the crowd pleaser, Mike and/or his band seem to always be playing around town somewhere.
Tonight he will be backed by Isaiah Morfin (alto sax), Richard Gonzalez (tenor sax and congas), Matt Sabo (piano and organ), Fernando Montoya (bass guitar), and Jason Seals (drums). Expect to hear some Latin Jazz, Wes Montgomery, and much more. A sample of what you might hear can be found at the video link above or here: Corizon Espinado
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by an open jazz jam session at about 8:45 p.m. A Beginning Jazz class kicks off the evening at 6:30 p.m.
Admission is free and open to all ages.
