Too bad …

If you were not at our Foo Foo sponsored gumbo this past Monday, too bad.

Annie Sellick and Chris Walters Big Time Band … unbelievable

If you decided to watch Monday Night Football (no offense to Giant and 49er fans), too bad.

If you think you can find this kind of jazz anywhere in town, any given night, wrong … too bad. If you missed the eclipse last year, too bad. If you think you’ve heard Bob Maksympko, George Petropoulos and Jackson Willis sit in with national touring jazz artists in town, wrong … too bad. They played like they were touring with Annie and Chris!

If you missed it, you’ll never know. It was one of those … you had to be there!

Pensacola … wake up!!! Jazz is alive!

Come support it!!! If you felt like it wasn’t your kind of “jazz” … too bad … too bad.

Here’s the thing: Every time there is a world-class act, make time to support it. Moments like this do not happen every week, or month.

Jazz Pensacola will be bringing in more world-class jazz to the area. You will get another chance to hear and see some of the best in the world of jazz today! And that is not “too bad.”

We really can be a great city for jazz.

That’s all.

Peace

Drum Roll, Please: November Foo Foo show not to be missed

Annie Sellick and Chris Walters

It was a few years back …

The Guffman Trio was playing around town and the regional area quite often.

We were even threatening to record a long awaited CD … I did say threatening. My wife, and one of my favorite all time musicians, Cynthia, found a very cool version of the Lambert, Hendricks and Ross tune Cloudburst, written by Jimmy Harris and Leroy Kirkland. I remember saying, “Who is this?” She replied, “Annie Sellick.” Wow!

We became fans! It became a much requested tune in our set list. We went to the JEN Conference later and got to hear Annie live! It was awesome…It was amazing!

After I got involved with Jazz Pensacola and was asked to be part of the planning of booking acts, Annie Sellick was first on my list. The Gulf Coast was lucky to have her at the festival a couple of years ago, now we are lucky to have her at our November Foo Foo Festival concert, 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12 at Phineas Phogg’s, Seville Quarter, 130 E. Government St.

Not only are we lucky to have Annie, we also get Chris Walters on piano and their Big Time Band!!!! Chris also is the music director/pianist for JD Souther. He is also a member of Jeff Coffins Mu’tet. Chris is the real deal.

This is definitely a show that should not be missed.

Wake up Pensacola!!!! Jazz is in your house!!!!

Peace
