Stormin Norman and Gerald Albright. Yes, that was the scene last weekend at Knight Theater Uptown, where jazz lovers celebrated the 10th anniversary of jazz with diva Tammy Greene. The sold-out show had patrons on their feet as guitarist Norman Brown and sax man Gerald Albright tagged teamed on some of their top favorite hits.

Speaking of jazz, David Sanborn will be in town Dec. 5.

I celebrated Thanksgiving with loved ones and didn’t miss a beat between eating dinner and watching the Panthers/Cowboy game. I think it’s safe to assume (from what I saw on Facebook) we all had a great time celebrating.

Enjoy the rest of your holiday, and check out my weekend picks.

The film champions financial literacy and the importance of leaving a financial and ethical legacy for the next generation. More info:


Don’t Judge Improv Show ~ Improv is a fun, one-of-a-kind performance created on the spot by skilled actors who take suggestions from the audience and creates comedic scenes on the spot. Nothing is predictable, anything can happen, and it’s never the same show twice. More info:


Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden ~ Each holiday season the gardens glisten with lights, botanical-themed displays, a 300-orchid holiday tree, and one-of-a-kind train exhibits. Visitors can make s’mores and sip warm beverages around an outdoor fire, visit with Santa, and shop for gifts. More info:
