Jazz under the party cloudy sky

Kareem-Kandi Not sure what this means astrologically speaking, but it’s time again for the annual Jazz Under the Stars summer concert series, which kicks off tonight at the outdoor amphitheater of the Mary Baker Russell Music Center on the Pacific Lutheran University campus.

In the wake of a rare double eclipse month, Jazz Under the Stars carries on with a decade of high-octane, free, outdoor jazz concerts at PLU, and regularly features big talent, emphasizing the nice collection of jazz artists we have residing here in the Pacific Northwest. 

Show organizers say the event series has only been rained out twice (it heads indoors if it rains), so pack yourself a picnic, or enjoy free refreshments.

This year’s kick off features well-known/loved Tacoma saxophonist Kareem Kandi.

[Mary Baker Russell Music Center Ampitheater, Thursday, July 9, 7-9 p.m., no cover, bring blankets/folding chairs, 12180 Park Ave. S., Parkland/Tacoma, 253.535.7787]
