CODA Magazine - 50 Jazzy Years!


Hello Friends,

Well, May is upon us and with it the long awaited 50th anniversary of CODA Magazine!

You will notice that this month your calendar (featuring a photo of Eric Harland and Reuben Rogers from their performance with the Aaron Goldberg Trio at IAJE) is exclusively focussed on this monster event. Remember, Festival season is just around the corner and you don't want to go into it unprepared. You might...pull something. So warm up right, friends with the CODA 50th Birthday Bash and Jazz Club Crawl.
