Gerald Clayton at Hollywood & Highland, Tuesday 8/29, 7 pm

Free, $2 parking with validation. LINK

If you've attend many jazz concerts - at least the straight-ahead variety - you may reach the conclusion that the average age of the fans is...deceased. There's blue hair everywhere, and lots of widows tilting to the music, reliving earlier times and loves.

It may sound ageist, but it's nice to finally have a jazz pianist with dreads. Maybe it will help attract that younger, under 65 demographic.

For $10 you get two glasses of wine and a salad, and it's a nice place for music. Arrive early if you want to sit.

Yes, this YouTube video is a repeat. Watch it, the kid is incredible:
