SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2008, 5 P.M. - Rev-elation Plays the Music of Milt Jackson with Steve Nelson on vibes, Mike LeDonne on piano, Bob Cranshaw, on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums. Rev-elation came about in 1999, the year that the great vibes genius Milt Jackson died. The name refers to one of Milt's nicknames, "The Reverend," and the idea was to keep Milt's legacy alive by using his own rhythm section to play his book of music together with various vibes greats. In doing this, the aim was to bring the spirit of "Bags" into live performances once again. The free pre-concert tour begins at 4 pm. To reserve space, please contact the museum directly at 443-573-1818.

SUNDAY, MARCH 30, 2008, 5 P.M. - The Bill Charlap and Renee Rosnes Duo. A night of double delights - two Steinway pianos nestled together with two great pianists. Bill Charlap is one of the most magical and methodical pianists on the scene today. Joined by another tour de force pianist, Renee Rosnes, BCJS is thrilled to present these two consummate artists in a rare evening of jazz piano conversation. The free pre-concert tour begins at 4 pm. To reserve space, please contact the museum directly at 443-573-1818.
