Another week of December means more great holiday jazz, including two blockbuster smooth jazz shows on Friday that we detailed earlier this week: Urban Jazz Coalition and Dave Koz! Organ master Tony Monaco brings a trio to Park Street Tavern for his annual holiday show there on Thursday, December 8th at 9pm, and the new Tony Monaco Quartet (with Randy Mather, Derek DiCenzo and Aaron Scott) plays a Christmas Show at Natalie’s on Wednesday the 14th at 9pm. Coffee Underground, located near the OSU campus at 2141 Indianola Avenue, presents its Jazz Christmas Show with the cheerful jazz-pop of the Liz Woolley Band on Friday the 9th at 7pm. Finally, the Urban Jazz Coalition continues its busy weekend by returning to Heritage Christian Church (7413 Maxtown Road, Westerville) to lead its Christmas Singalong on Saturday at 5:30pm and Sunday at 9:30 and 11:30am.
