When the weather’s nice, L.A. becomes a great place to hear live jazz music in the outdoors.

Every Friday night at 6 p.m. from mid-April to late November, LACMA offers free jazz shows in the lawn area. Amoeba is proud to be a community sponsor of the event.

pete escovedo Pete Escovedo Latin Jazz Orchestra opens the program on Friday, April 18. Featuring legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo, who has performed with Santana, Herbie Hancock and Tito Puente, among others, the performance will pay tribute to pioneering jazz keyboardist George Duke.

The series, which features leading jazz artists from Southern California, continues with Russell Ferrante & Bob Mintzer Quartet May 2, Lesa Terry and Collective Spirit May 9, and Jacques Lesure Quartet May 16.

Bring a chair, a blanket, a bottle of wine and some snacks, and get ready to dance or relax and listen to some great music all summer.
