  • [Question] Resurrect Plaza Gardens for Jazz Please

    Hi,I'm bannercaptain and I was listening to KJazz today and was struck by the fact that today was Buddy Rich's birthday and I was doing some flashing back to when the Plaza Gardens held some great jazz nights and getting into some great music while others were shaking their bootie,yes it was during those lazy-hazy-crazy-Eighties.
    I have seen the shell of the Plaza Gradens now just a ghost of it's forner self and I'm wondering,will there ever be jazz nights again?

    Well, they have a swing night ever Saturday starting around 6:30 - 7p. I wish that they would do this on Fridays and Sundays also. During the weekdays it wouldn't work very well unless park hours were extended to about 10 or 11p.

      they've also used that "stage" area for some hip-hop dance performances..

      as a member of the dance community, i can even admit: that did not fit into any kind of theme whatsoever.

        Years go my Mom saw Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Lionel Hampton perform there at various times.
