Summer Jazz Jubilee


Designed as a seven-week summer series leading up to WUGA’s recently revived Athens Jazz Festival (rescheduled for Sept. 6 after being postponed following bassist Carl Lindberg’s death in May), Mary Sigalas and Colin Manko’s Summer Jazz Jubilee happening returns for a fifth go-around Wednesday. Each installment so far has featured a new cast of musicians and focused on a different jazz subgenre or figure; this week’s show is a tribute to legendary bandleader Miles Davis. Sip on something cold and enjoy selections from the late trumpeter’s vast, vibrant oeuvre—which spans decades and distances through the eras of cool jazz, bop and fusion.
