J-Town Jazz Festival/Paul Yonemura and Friends
This is a "trial balloon" for what organizer Steve Nakajo hopes to make into a regular event. Throughout the weekends in the month of June, there will be a variety of jazz groups performing at this lovely outdoor location. The events are free! There are a lot of shops and food places to go to. Come on out and spend a bit of your time with us on Sunday, June 26th! The group I'm leading will feature Erik Jekabson-trumpet, Bob Kenmotsu-tenor saxophone, Frank Martin-piano, John Wiitala-bass and yours truly on drums. This is the first time I've put a quintet together and I'm looking forward to our maiden voyage concert!
