    March 13 – Lisa Kelly/J B Scott

    A group led by a pair of Jacksonville artists will make it’s second appearance at CCJS.  Vocalist Lisa Kelly has been recognized with Downbeat magazine awards as both a composer and a vocalist.  Trumpeter J B Scott is the former music director of the Dukes of Dixieland and Associate Professor of the nationally recognized jazz studies program at the University of North Florida.

    April 10 – Dixieland Jazz Night – Bob Leary Sextet

    Florida’s favorite traditional jazz entertainer and bandleader will be here with a group made up of several the country’s most accomplished interpreters of traditional New Orleans style jazz.  Bob has had the honor of recording several CD’s with Woody Allen’s musical director, Dick Hyman, in New York; performing with Carol Channing in Hello Dolly; and playing on more than 100 recordings with many of the most famous names in traditional jazz.

    Don’t miss this group which shares with listeners just how timeless every era of jazz music can be when lovingly performed by artists of the first rank.
