Read in the free press last week that John Colbert, co-owner of Baker's Keyboard Lounge in Detroit is having trouble. He says he only has enough money to keep going for a couple of months. It would be a shame to lose Baker's which has been in existence since 1934. John hopes someone will purchase the club and keep this historic jazz venue. I was booked to work with Allan Barnes at Baker's on April 18th, but the date was moved. I already have a gig on the new date, so I can't be there. Let's all pray that Baker's survives because it needs to. We can't lose any more jazz venues, especially this one.
