Cool Jazz in January by Mile High Jazz Band

Swing into the new year with the Mile High Jazz Band at Cool Jazz in January, a big-band event with vocalist Sheryl Adams at Comma Coffee, on 8-10 p.m. Tuesday.

Comma Coffee, 312 S. Carson St., is across the street from the state Legislature Building in Carson City. General admission is $5 at the door, and is free for age 18 and younger.

Come early for dance instruction from 6-7:15 p.m. for additional $5.

The 19-member Mile High Jazz Band will play hot and cool jazz in the spirit of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Woody Herman, and more contemporary styles from their vast repertoire.

Performances are funded, in part, by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
