"We have assembled a team that has traversed seas, oceans, cultures, timelines, roads, highways and bridges to bring this art form called jazz to you, said Paul Collins, music impresario from Kansas City, Missouri. When we started planning Roberto Magris’ visit to Hollywood, CA. over 6 months ago, it was designed to bring the very best to jazz aficionados around the world or for those who may converge upon Hollywood to experience this history in the making. I have had a chance to see the musical programme prepared by maestro Magris and it is something you will not want to miss. We are excited about the performances and are expecting a sell out so, please, get your tickets in advance to join us in Hollywood!" ###
