Local jazz favorite Ed Taylor has started a new residency at G. Donnalson's wine bar with his next performances scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29 and 30.
Taylor described his new gig as being “kind of like 'Saturday Night Live.' It's the same show, but they might get a different host every week. So it'll be the same thing, but we'll learn how to read other people's charts. Like maybe I can get a Kareem Kandi to come play with my band, or maybe I can get, I don't know, Jerry Miller – just a local, known artist and some Seattle artists to come down. But they would be more like smooth jazz artists type stuff.”
G. Donnalson's is located at 3814 N. 26th St., in Proctor. There is no cover charge for live music events, which also include jazz piano with Al Gord at 7 p.m. Thursday nights. To learn more, call (253) 761-8015 or visit www.gdonnalsons.com.
