We really want a good crowd at this one. I am trying to help Big Apple to become a “destination" for jazz lovers. What's not to like?:

Big Apple is a delightful coffee-house atmosphere with burgers, fish, soft drinks and desserts available, as well as jazz CDs and books and other gifts--you can bring your own wine ($3 corking fee per bottle)--COME TO THIS GIG!!!
