Director Selects: Get to know Jazz Club Chef Jim Bonanno and the esteemed Matthew Whitaker

By Thor Steingraber

It’s that time of year again. Our jazz festival, Jazz at Naz, is returning for its third iteration. Four of those concerts are in our immersive Jazz Club, which has become a favorite of Soraya audiences. A couple of those performances are very nearly sold out already, and I’m excited to share some important news – we have a new chef! Watch the video here to learn all about our partnership with the local restaurant Humble Bee Bakery & Cafe and Chef Jim Bonanno.

Two of the nights in the Jazz Club feature keyboardist Booker T. Jones and the young keyboard phenom Matthew Whittaker. I had an opportunity to spend a few minutes with Matthew and that interview video is also attached to this email.

Gratefully,

Thor Steingraber, Executive and Artistic Director Signature
