Well, my first night as the Master of Ceremonies at the Westin LAX went off just splendid. It looks like I am going to have a great time with this series!
David Sills was a great artist to start off with and his band was comprised of some excellent players. Tim Pleasant on Drums, Joe Bagg on Organ and Larry Koonse on guitar. If you weren't there, you missed 3 very nice sets of music.
The music at the Westin is free and provided explicitly for your enjoyment and for the ambiance of Westin itself. Myrle Kreiback has done such a fantastic job of promoting a fine trilogy of jazz clubs from the Westin LAX, The Crown Plaza just down the street and Clancy's Crab Shack located in Glendale.
Since this is going to be a weekly gig for me, I would personally like to invite you all down to hang out with me and listen to some of our cities finest as well as those from other places in the jazz spectrum. The food is good, the music is free, the parking is free and the lobby is always filled with the rich aroma of great jazz music every Wednesday. So, come on out and be my guest. The jazz kicks off at 6pm and goes until 10pm. I hope to see all my wonderful jazzcats in the house!
