Date: Saturday, May 28, 2005 Time 9:30 Dress: Casual Admission: free Where: New Haven Lounge 1552 Havenwood Rd Northwood Shopping Center Baltimore, MD 21218 Singers, winners in past Mayors Billie Holiday Vocal Contest, evoke the style of Billie Holiday. Featuring the Jump Street Band with special guest. The perennial question is why does the best jazz nightclub in Baltimore call a forlorn strip mall on Loch Raven Boulevard home? The New Haven Lounge doesn't seem to care. It always wins “best jazz venue” awards, and not because there's a dearth of such clubs here and everywhere. It wins by merit, attracting national acts and keeping the best local jazz cats in business. In that respect, they deserve your patronage for keeping the flame alive. Is their lonely outpost a metaphor for the status of jazz in our culture? Please. The New Haven has been dishing up our national musical treasure for years in the same location. It's a bulwark against Kenny G and other pretenders. There's never a cover charge, except for major national acts. The waiters wear elegant tuxedos. There's good soul food available and music in the spirit of Coltrane, Mingus and Miles. It's the place to go, Daddy-O. -- Penny Colston Info 410 243 8882
