Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper & Friends | Del Monte Speakeasy | 2/16/14

Earlier this month, I read a great article on LA Weekly’s website about the resurgence of jazz music in Los Angeles. It was a terrific article that opened my eyes to new venues and music to keep an eye on in the Los Angeles area (I’m definitely going to check out The Piano Bar when the West Coast Get Down are playing and pick up a copy of Kamasi … Read More Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper & Friends | Del Monte Speakeasy | 2/16/14
