As the dog days of August wind down and we look forward to the start of the fall presenting season, here's a look at some of the more noteworthy live jazz performances happening in and around St. Louis this Labor Day weekend.
Looking beyond the weekend, on Monday the St. Louis Jazz Club's Gateway Jazz Festival" continues during the day; and that evening the improvising ensemble Numbers, featuring pianist David Parker and drummer Charles Bobo" Shaw, will perform at the Tavern of Fine Arts.
The world of jazz is a musical space with a complex history and haunting appeal--a space to revisit and celebrate. It’s that
amazing moment when you hear a really great song you haven't heard in years and you still know the tune and every word.
