Back from a China tour, the UGA Jazz Ensemble will be playing for the home folks tonight (Tuesday, November 18) at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Hall on the East Campus. Pat and I will be there, and Ian, too, if we can drag him away from his Xbox. If you've never heard this first-rate ensemble, headlined by Steve Dancz on the piano, swing on by tonight. It's free. You can wear jeans and a hoodie. Hey, if you're just going sit at home and watch TV instead, you're not taking advantage of one of the true perks of living in our town. -- Bob Brussack.
