Recent local performances include opening night of the inaugural Miami Nice Jazz Festival at the Olympia Theater at the Gusman Theater for the Performing Arts, The Gold Coast Jazz Society concert series at the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Larry Rosen’s Jazz Roots concert series at the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, and the South Motors Jazz Series in the Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens....
