 On Sunday, March 26th at 2 p.m., The Mayme A. Clayton Library & Museum,

located at 4130 Overland Avenue in Culver City, will present another of the late Mimi Melnick's Double M Jazz Salons.

 The much-anticipated concert will feature prolific saxophonist, composer and bandleader, Azar Lawrence.
An edgy, risk-taking, world world-class ensemble, The Azar Lawrence Quartet
includes, pianist Theo Saunders; Henry Franklin, bass and Tony Austin, drums. During
unencumbered, spontaneous forays, the artists will showcase original compositions that
challenge the imagination while offering unique renditions of classic standards.
From downbeat to cadenza, unsuspecting listeners are ushered on a spiritual
odyssey. Azar reveals, “As we cross the bridge into the New Age, the music of the
spheres guides us.” Steeped in timeless traditions, Azar will blend the brew while
praising the ancestors. Delving deeply into his vast repertoire, the titan of the tenor will
stoke the fire and serenade lovers as he abruptly turns balladeer. His horn of plenty
remains poised for either occasion.
 A native Angeleno, Mr. Lawrence has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and
abroad, performing with McCoy Tyner, Alphonse Mouzon, Horace Tapscott, Nolan
Shaheed, Harold Land, Jr., Roy McCurdy, Kevin Toney, William Henderson, Nate
Morgan, Tootie Heath, James Leary, Bobby West, Phil Ranelin, Dwight Trible, Fritz Wise,
Michael Hunter, Rashied Ali, Larry Gales, Miles Davis, Albert Dailey, Onaje Murray,
Sunship Theus, Ron Carter, Gene Harris, Woody Shaw, George Cables,
Elvin Jones, Herbie Baker, Earth, Wind & Fire, Richard Grant, and scores of others.
 Doors open at 12:30 p.m. At 1:00 p.m., Azar will briefly reflect on his stellar career,
in an informal discussion with (J)azz historian, Jeffrey Winston. The first of two sizzling
sets, will begin at 2:00 p.m.
 The Double M Jazz Salon will continue its unique program series at the Mayme A.
Clayton Library & Museum in Culver City. In 1996, Jazz Baroness Mimi Melnick
launched her first salon at her Encino home on Strawberry Drive. Mimi loved jazz.
She organized the intimate salons to support L.A.'s jazz community. Producer Steve
Isoardi notes, “We are now celebrating the 22nd year of Mimi’s unique series!”
 We are very proud and extremely honored to carry the torch", said Executive
Director Lloyd Clayton. The MCLM, collects, preserves, exhibits and celebrates,
the vast history and cultural heritage of Americans of African descent. - Jeffrey Winston
