Now's the Time: Ben Allison and Steve Cardenas
Several of the world’s most exciting jazz musicians will converge on Iowa City this weekend. Rudresh Mahanthappa, Dave Douglas, Julian Lage and Becca Stevens are slated to perform at the Iowa City Jazz Festival. Locally based jazz fans not making the 300-mile trip won’t be entirely left out. Ben Allison and Steve Cardenas are playing at Take Five Coffee + Bar on Thursday, July 2, and at the Blue Room on Friday, July 3, before they share a stage with Charles Lloyd in Iowa City on Saturday.
