Maestro Delbert Taylor comes to Wonderland

Today to kick off Black History Month we were fortunate enough to get two performances from Maestro Delbert Taylor and Friends. The performance was provided to use free of charge by the Los Angeles Jazz Society and featured an all star line up of jazz artists including:

Maestro Delbert Taylor -- Piano/Band Leader
Dr. Bobby Rodriguez -- Trumpet
Andre Delano -- Saxophone
Leslie Baker -- Bass
Dr. Maria Martinez -- Drums

Apart from the performance Maestro Taylor's presentation included an excellent overview of jazz history -- something the teachers and I have been talking to the kids for a couple of weeks. All in all it was a very cool groove!
