After a blazing four-alarm performance at the Clef Club during the "Songstresses" event, Philly's electrifying Ms. Mich`al Beckham will be joining the Alfie Pollitt AllStar Quartet featuring Terrence Brown, Leon Boykins, and the legendary Mr. Butch Ballard at "Jazz On Cecil B." to help us celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month. We will be hosted by the very capable and well respected Jazz Personality and co-host of Jazz and Conversations on WURD 900 AM (Friday 10 PM - Midnight), Ms. Aqueelah. The Honoree of this joyous occasion is our beloved "Cousin" Mary Alexander. Philly Jazz Blog's event will be hosted at the new and luxurious Patterson's Palace (1621-27 Cecil B. Moore Avenue) in the Wilarie Room. The widely revered Patterson's will soon be adding to their culinary legends with a new facility in the shadow of Temple's new WRTI studios. The Patterson Family has added non-red options to their historic selections of healthy and professionally prepared and served foods. Our lite fare will be from their menu. You can choose to have your personal message to "Cousin" Mary videotaped and delivered by PJB. The street where jazz grew up will be alive again!
