In the Jazz Cave

The duo is one of the most adventurous and challenging formats in jazz . . . ¬†anything can happen and you’re working without a net. So leave it to our intrepid founder, Lori Mechem, to step out in a brand new series, Duo Sessions, for this upcoming Spotlight Thursday concert on February 2nd. Longtime friends and collaborators Liz Johnson and George Tidwell will each join Lori for a duo set. You won’t want to miss this great evening of jazz in what is sure to be the first of many great collaborations!
