Martin luther King Tribute with Lannie Cooke

 "Jazz speaks for life. The Blues tell the story of life's difficulties, and if you think for a moment, you will realize that they take the hardest realities of life and put them into music, only to come out with some new hope or sense of triumph. 
This is triumphant music."
Dr. Martin Luther King
The celebration of Dr. King's birthday is a national holiday. 
Please join us January 20th to  hear some jazz....

 "Everybody has the Blues. Everybody longs for meaning. Everybody needs to love and be loved. Everybody needs to clap hands and be happy. 
Everybody longs for faith."
Dr.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

Pleased  is an understatement about the way I feel about making  music with
 these two  wonderfully talented musicians:
( my old friend )  guitarist Marvin Horne & on bass Ugonna Okwego .
The Bar Next Door  is the perfect  intimate spot to have a drink , some food,
and listen to music up close and personal in a quiet,  sweet,  swingin' way.   
I am truly looking forward to it. I hope you will join us.
