Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam – Oct 31

The next Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam is October 31 6:30-8:30pm

The next “Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam” at The Jazz Kitchen will feature the great saxophone player Sophie Faught and I talking about our own favorite mentors, and our guest will be Steve Allee, the piano player/composer who has been a mentor to many of the musicians of this city (including Sophie herself, and all-star drummer Kenny Phelps).
