La Jolla Community Center’s Fourth Fridays Jazz series presents Lori Bell & Friends

From Community House reports

Jazz returns to the La Jolla Community Center with its “Fourth Fridays Jazz Series featuring Lori Bell & Friends,” 7-9 p.m. July 26. The series will continue each fourth Friday until Nov. 22.

Lori Bell

Featured artists will include Global Music Award-winner flutist Lori Bell; pianists Mike Garson and Tamir Hendelman; bassists Bob Magnusson and Rob Thorsen; guitarists Joey Carano and Peter Sprague; percussionists Duncan Moore and Kevin Koch; and other special guests.

“This is gonna be a fantastic series that is not to be missed,” Bell said, adding that each month a new trio or quartet will perform with a new theme. The focus of the shows will be on great composers, musicians, jazz arrangements on Broadway tunes, original material and jazz standards.

The July 26 concert features Bell, Garson and Thorsen playing arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions.
Tickets include the concert, hors d’oeuvres, a glass of wine and free valet parking.

The Community Center is looking for underwriting for the events — the costs are $1,000 per musical evening. Covered costs allow proceeds to benefit center programs and projects.
