The Barn Players Community Theater, now located at the Arts Asylum, finishes up their 2019 main stage schedule with a good production of Blake Edwards'Victor/Victoria based on the 1982 smash hit film of the same name.

Saxophone Master James Carter Releases Blue Note Debut 'James Carter Organ Trio: Live From Newport Jazz'
by TV News Desk - Aug 30, 2019
Saxophone master James Carter has released his Blue Note Records debut James Carter Organ Trio: Live From Newport Jazz, a thrilling live performance of Carter's imaginative soul jazz reinvention of Django Reinhardt that was captured at the 2018 Newport Jazz Festival. Joining Carter are two fellow Detroit sons: Hammond B-3 virtuoso Gerard Gibbs and versatile young drummer Alexander White. Carter's first new release since 2011 is a soulfully robust dispatch from America's most storied jazz festival that is a follow-up of sorts to Chasin' the Gypsy, an Atlantic release from 2000 that The New Yorker called “an alternately reverent and audacious tribute to the Belgian swing-guitar legend Django Reinhardt. It may be the rambunctious saxophone player's recorded masterpiece.”
