Jazz St. Louis has announced another change in the season schedule for Jazz at the Bistro. From the letter sent out to subscribers:
“Due to scheduling conflicts, Joey DeFrancesco has been forced to reschedule his dates for March of 2010. To make things easier for everyone, we have switched his dates with those of Alyssa Graham. The new dates will be:

Alyssa Graham: March 3 - 6, 2010
Joey DeFrancesco: March 31 - April 3, 2010

This will not affect our Series One, Three or Four subscribers, as both shows are in your series. For others of you who have purchased tickets to one or both shows, those tickets are now good for the new dates of each artist. If you unable to make the newly scheduled dates, you may return your tickets to the point of purchase for a full refund.

We sincerely hope that this will be the last schedule change we have this season and appreciate everyone's patience as we try to accommodate both our patrons and our artists."
JSL's Bob Bennett tells StLJN that the scheduling conflict arose when DeFrancesco, considered one of the top organ players in jazz, agreed to be part of saxophonist David Sanborn's band for a tour next year. Some of Sanborn's dates overlapped DeFrancesco's scheduled stint at the Bistro, prompting the switch with Graham (pictured), a singer who will be making her Bistro debut.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
