Jazz Night at the Crocker: Capital Jazz Legacy

Thursday, May 17, 2018
6:30 PM


Sacramento’s longest-running summer jazz series is tuning up in 2018 with premier performances on third Thursdays, May through August. This year's lineup was selected by Capital Public Radio’s Jazz Music Director Gary Vercelli.

Kicking off this summer’s Jazz Night at the Crocker series is Capital Jazz Legacy, the original seven members of Capital Jazz Project, formed in 1997 with a mission to bring high-quality music to the Sacramento region. In this special reunion, Capital Jazz Legacy andspecial guests will perform a repertoire of iconic classics. A new generation of musicians carry on CJP now, so this is a rare occasion to see and hear the jams that started it all.

Capital Jazz Legacy - Thursday, May 17

Ali Ryerson Quartet - Thursday, June 21

Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers - Thursday, July 19

Marcus Shelby - Thursday, August 16

Each jazz concert consists of two 45-minute sets separated by a 15-minute intermission. Along with the concert, attendees can enjoy gallery talks, the Museum Store, and dinner and drinks at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club. Arrive early to enjoy additional sets by DonGato Latin Band on the Café Stage from 5:30 to 6:15 PM. For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair.

Tickets may be purchased at the door.
