Anyway, thanks once again to our friend Andy Schwartz, check this out: This weekend, as part of something called the "Gibson/Baldwin Jazz Festival" (as in Gibson Guitars and Baldwin Pianos), multi-instrumental jazz great Yusef Lateef will appear at the Whole Foods store on East Houston Street @ Bowery. Beginning at 2:00pm, Dr. Lateef will be signing copies of his new book, The Gentle Giant: The Autobiography of Yusef Lateef. At 3:00pm, trumpeter Ted Curson and the Spirit of Life Ensemble will perform with Yusef as their special guest. The Gibson/Baldwin Jazz Festival is free and open to the public.
