Dear Friends,
 
Warm greetings from the Maricopa Cabana.
 
The spring wildflowers are in bloom and we're enjoying a spectacular season of live jazz here in the Valley of the Sun.
 
Following up recent performances at the Chandler Jazz Festival and Paradise Valley Jazz Party, we're delighted to announce two more stellar shows this month: an all-star celebration of Miles Davis on May 27th, and a guest spot with the Armand Boatman Trio on May 28th.
 
Next month we hit the road for summer tour appearances at the Siskiyou Institute of Oregon, the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival in southern California and the Telluride Jazz Celebration in Colorado.
 
We hope you can join us!
 
~Dmitri
