Now's the Time: Maysa
Jazz in the Woods? #BAM in the Woods would be a more appropriate moniker for this year's edition of the Johnson County festival. Not that I'm complaining- I'm partial to the adult urban contemporary format. In fact, Jonathan Butler's appearance at the Gem Theater last May was one of my favorite concerts of 2011. Performing in a sold-out room for 500 diehard fans, however, is less challenging than attempting to win over an audience of thousands of suburbanites expecting to hear "jazz." Warren Hill and Maysa will assist Butler on Friday, June 15. Joe Klopus interviewed Butler for his preview of the two-day event.
