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 www.cjsinthestrip.com and to listen go to 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. πŸ™‚

    • 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Thanks for the tip on this Club in the Strip! Sean Jones is getting very good Press!

  4. 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!
