The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange

Angel City Jazz Festival at UC Los Angeles

Dates: October 13 & 14, 2012
Location: Royce Hall, UC Los Angeles

Its multiple settings may be less picnic-friendly than its festival brethren, but this year’s installment marks another can’t-miss couple weeks for L.A. jazz fans. The festival is built around the theme of artists paying respect to their mentors; its centerpiece remains the Ford Amphitheatre, with a lineup boasting trumpeter (and USC faculty addition) Ambrose Akinmusire with fire-breathing saxophonist Archie Shepp. But later shows with Myra Melford, Anthony Wilson with Jim Keltner, Bill Frisell and Vijay Iyer with Steve Coleman are every bit as essential.
