“JAZZ DEL CORAZON” is a grass roots fundraising effort created by Jackie Gibson and Clifford Bell to provide support to members of our local musician community and others who are experiencing extreme need. Having begun in early 2014, the fledgling organization has already completed two successful events, and is currently producing the third, to be held at “Jazz Upstairs” at Vitello’s on June 15.
On Sunday, June 15th, “JAZZ DEL CORAZON – Music With A Purpose” will produce its third event at “Jazz Upstairs” at Vitello’s in honor of Sophia Scozzesi, a young woman who has suffered bleeding in her brainstem, causing her to lose all motor function. You can learn more about Sophia’s story at www.supportforsophia.org. Sophia is the daughter of Dolores Scozzesi, one of the most beloved singers in the Los Angeles Jazz Community. The Father’s Day “Brunch to Lunch” event will feature performances by Mark Winkler, Keith Borden, Lauren White, Trey Chambers, Herbert & Ellis, Jackie Gibson, Dolores Scozzesi, and a very special appearance by Cheryl Bentyne.
Cover: $20.00 suggested donation plus a 2 drink minimum (waived with purchase of food)
The event is located upstairs at Vitello’s Jazz and Supper Club, 4349 Tujunga Avenue, Studio City, Ca 91607. Doors open at 11 A.M., show starts at noon.
