Lutes Summer Jazz Series
The 2016 Lutes Summer Jazz Series concluded with an outstanding evening featuring Jazz/Blues icon Jimmy Caves performing with Yuma Jazz Company on August 19. There were capacity crowds for all the series events this season, which featured guests Robby Carrillo (drums), vocalist Jennifer Wayman, who appeared twice, popular duo Jason & Elle, Bryan Stewart (trumpet), and Ernie Ortega (trombone). Sponsored by Public radio station KAWC, each event had its own energy, its own interaction with the individuals who were in attendance, sharing the music and the unique atmosphere which is Lutes Casino.
Yuma Jazz Company cannot thank Lutes Casino enough for continuing this Summer Jazz Series tradition, and we are already looking forward to 2017! Check back here for 2017 information as it becomes available.
