The fifth Winterlude concert at Johnson County Community College will feature nationally known jazz artists when Jazz 100 is presented on March 19. It’s a centennial celebration of the birthdays of Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Mongo Santamaria and Dizzy Gillespie. Better yet, the music is performed by a star-studded band, led by Danilo Perez, former pianist for Dizzy Gillespie. The deep, resonating voice of Lizz Wright will intertwine with those early strands of jazz history. Also featured are Chris Potter (tenor sax), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Wycliffe Gordon(trombone), Ben Street (bass), Adam Cruz (drums) and Roman Diaz (percussion).
