Of all the great performances going on in August in the desert, the most anticipated event is the Summer Storm that will take place at the Boulder Station Hotel on Saturday, August 25th. Four great smooth jazz artists are scheduled to appear. Guitarist Norman Brown, vocalist/pianist/composer Peabo Bryson, Soprano sax master Marion Meadows, and keyboard great Jeff Lorber will be tearing it up in the Railhead Showroom.
Master bassist Stanley Clarke gave an electrifying tour de force at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, Saturday, August 4th.
Jeffrey Osborne brings his great pop-r&b-smooth vocal style one night only at the Boulder Station Hotel on August 17th.
And the super-successful series, Jazz Under The Stars, will host its fourth edition for 2007 on Sunday, September 2nd at Spring Mountain State Park with event guests, saxman Richard Elliot, and smooth jazz guitarist Joyce Cooling. Gates open at 6pm, performances scheduled at 7pm. Kudos to Michael Schivo, one of the few indie promoters who has mastered this series every year by providing each event with great talent, including his annual City OF Lights Jazz And R & B Festival.
