"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh jazz scene alive and well at CJ’s in the Strip

My Funny Valentine expertly played by Sean Jones on trumpet- we stopped in for about twenty minutes as we headed to megabus. Matthew was here for about ten hours.
Jazz starts at 8 on Thursdays Check out http://www.cjsinthestrip.com and to listen go to http://www.rogerhumphries.com

  1. A night spent listening to jazz is a great way to spend an evening. Too bad you had to leave after only 20 minutes. I guess you’ll just have to go back. :)

    • We were there for one song- Funny Valentine. But what a rendition.
      You are exactly right about having to go back. Being in CJ’s is like traveling back in time a few decades.

    There is a long deep history of jazz in Pittsburgh. Most of the greats came by to play at the Crawford Grill up in the hill.

  9. Great photo, Ruth. I’ve spent a number of Thursdays at CJ’s soaking up the great music of Pittsburgh’s amazing jazz scene. If you’ve never been, you should go! The musicians are the best in town — which means they are some of the best anywhere!
