Jazz Bridge, an organization dedicated to assisting jazz & blues musicians in crisis in the Delaware Valley, premiered the first event in its 2016-17 Neighborhood Concert Series tonight. The series is scheduled to run through May of next year, and will take place within five communities in the Philadelphia (Center City, Cheltenham, and Roxborough) and New Jersey area (Collingswood and Willingboro).
MMT missed out with giving the heads up for tonight, however the next event is scheduled for tomorrow, October 6 – the first in the First Thursday series at the Collingswood, NJ location – and features Edgardo Cintron and the Cintron Band. All concerts are scheduled to start at 7:30 pm and are $10 general admission ($5 students).
