Celebrate Seattle’s birthplace of jazz tonight at Jackson Street Jazz Walk

Jackson Street, considered the birthplace of Seattle jazz, sponsors its fourth annual jazz walk tonight from 5-11 p.m., with performances ranging from vintage jazz to a world music jam. Six venues are hosting free shows from local artists Eugenie Jones, Lady A, Gail Pettis, Jacqueline Tabor, Kate Voss, Marina Christopher, Jimmie Herrod, Sundae + Mr. Goessl, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints, and the Jim Halloran Trio, and Choroloco.

In conjunction with the jazz walk, the Pratt Fine Arts Center at 1902 S. Main Street hosts its Spring Open House, where the public can learn about the center’s programs. Watch a bronze pour and art demos in each studio. Hands-on activities are available for children ages 5 and older. From 7-8:30 p.m. in the Pratt Drawing Room, Choroloco performs the sounds of old Brazil.
