Make your way to Pacific Lutheran University’s Eastvold Auditorium on May 14 at 7:30 p.m. to catch a free concert by Ron Jones’s Jazz Forest. From the creative imagination of award-winning Hollywood film and TV composer Ron Jones (Family Guy, American Dad, Star Trek: TNG and many more), comes the next great band: Jazz Forest. Jazz Forest is not only a powerhouse of musical talents, but an evolution of the conception of what a jazz ensemble is. A Jazz Forest performance makes any evening a wonderful night to remember. Jazz Forest is taking this creative music form forward with an eclectic palette of tunes, with everything spanning from the standards to newly created works. Admission is free, no ticket required.
