Music in the Air Tonight

There are not enough opportunities around here to hear outstanding local jazz musicians in Greater Cleveland on a consistent basis, so we are especially excited about going to Opus Restaurant, 20126 Chagrin Blvd. [216.991.OPUS], where noted musicians Lafayette Carthon, Kevin Muhammad and Robert Hubbard will begin holding forth about 7PM.

We don’t know who the leader is or if these guys have even gigged together before. What we do know is that Hubbard is a premier drummer, Muhammad is stalwart on the upright bass, and Carthon was a local piano prodigy around these parts some time back.

There is no cover, no minimum, and, we hear, excellent food [you do have to pay for that]. We’ll be there as soon as we can and stay as long as they play.
