Event Description

LA Weekly: Central Avenue was once one of the great jazz places, an epicenter, thriving, bustling, swinging, dotted with clubs full of music, everything from blues to bop. Everyone played there: Mingus and Buddy and Lucky and all the locals; Prez and Bird and Duke and all the New Yorkers coming West for the winter. Everybody.

Saturday highlights include Justo Almario; Barbara Morrison; Mr. Central Ernie Andrews; and the Gerald Wilson Orchestra.

Sunday includes Michael Sessions; Nedra Wheeler; Poncho Sanchez, pianist Nate Morgan
. Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., at Central Ave. and 42nd St. It’s free, and there’s free, secure parking and a shuttle service from Wadsworth Elementary School on King Blvd. at Central. Details at www.centralavejazz.com.
