The series, hosted by Rahsaan Barber, is designed to present new, original, and cutting edge jazz that may not have been heard before in the Jazz Cave. Describing "contemporary jazz," series host Rahsaan Barber explained that "just as the jazz of Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie was influenced by musicians’ and audiences’ affinities for the blues of Beale Street and the bright lights of Broadway, so it is with contemporary jazz, which draws much influence from more modern strains of American music -- including funk, gospel, hip hop -- and more international 'cargo,' including Indian ragas, Cuban descargas and European classical music." Admission $10, at the door
