Byron Stripling? You might just get the opportunity a week from next Monday, as Jazz St. Louis has announced a free "Happy Hour" program featuring Stripling at 5:30 p.m., Monday, February 23 at the Tavern of Fine Arts.
Stripling (pictured) will be in town that week to do some educational programs for Jazz St. Louis and perform on Saturday, February 28 at Jazz at the Bistro.
He'll be joined for what's billed as "an hour of music and conversation" at the Tavern of Fine Arts by pianist and JSL education director Phil Dunlap. The event is free and open to the public.
