A Brand New Jazz Year!

- The New Year got off to a great start with a sell out concert in Vicar Street performed by the incredible Ahmad Jamal. It was a fantastic night with Jamal putting as much intensity into his 15 minute long encore number as at any other time of the evening. He then took a short break before signing autographs and meeting his fans for another hour after the show.
