Cool night, cool jazz at LACMA tonight

LACMA jazz1Is this the first cool-weather Friday this fall? With the drop in temperature and the shortening daylight, it seems perfect for (symbolically, anyway) shaking off summer’s heat by stopping by LACMA’s outdoor Friday Night Jazz event this evening, tucked behind Chris Burden’s glowing Urban Light sculpture. This weekly free-admission series finishes its season November 6th.

Tonight, violinist Lesa Terry, music director of the Women’s Jazz Orchestra and Women’s Jazz Quartet, leads an ensemble drawn from the LA jazz scene.

Lesa Terry & Friends, 6 PM tonight at LACMA, 5905 Wilshire (at Fairfax) Los Angeles 90036. Free admission.
