Jazz at Holmes updates winter/spring schedule

The Jazz at Holmes series at Washington University has updated their schedule of free concerts for the winter and spring of 2015. A story published by StLJN on January 8 cited a version of the schedule published that day on the Jazz at Holmes Facebook page, but as it turns out, that iteration wasn't quite ready for public release.

In the final version of the schedule, posted to Facebook last Friday, bassist Eric Warren and his band will kick off this semester's series starting this coming Thursday, January 22. That means saxophonist Kristian Baarsvik now will perform on Thursday, February 19, and the gig featuring Kara Baldus, Bill Lenihan and Steve Davis originally announced for that date has been bumped a week to Thursday, February 26.

Also, StLJN's previous story mentioned a special performance by guitarist John Abercrombie (pictured) and his quartet on Tuesday, April 7 without noting that, unlike most Jazz at Holmes concerts, there will be an admission charge. Though the exact price is yet to be determined, Bill Lenihan, guitarist and Wash U faculty member who curates the Jazz at Holmes series, tells StLJN that it likely will be along the lines of $10 for students with ID, $20 for the general public.

Both the StLJN calendar and the previous story have been revised to reflect these changes. And as soon as there's more specific information released on ticket prices and the onsale date for the John Abercrombie Quartet concert, we'll have it for you here.
