Do any of you remember the Jazz Mobile? It was sponsored by The National Endowment For The Arts and it rolled into town (usually outside The Memorial Art Gallery) every year. I heard people such as Etta Jones with Houston Person, and another artist that comes to mind was trombonist Slide Hampton. Sadly, because of the reality of today's negative economic climate, Jazz Mobile does not visit cities as it once did. I added to my home page the latest Jazz Mobile concert in New York.
