One of the best places in the LA area to hear jazz, the Jazz Bakery in Culver City, has lost its lease. The club has been on a month-to-month lease for some time; and the owners of the Helms Bakery building want to use the space for a new furniture store (to join the numerous furniture stores already in the building).
The owner promises to reopen elsewhere; and it appears the promise isn't empty, since the Bakery has been selling out shows.
I've seen several fine concerts there. I fondly remember attending a Sunday concert by trumpeter Mark Isham there; and then heading back home and watching an episode of the HBO miniseries FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON. As soon as I heard the opening trumpet riff on the episode's soundtrack, I recognized it; Isham had scored the episode.
