Monterey Jazz Festival comes to Penn State

Six of the most respected jazz musicians will be performing as part of the Monterey Jazz Festival tour at Eisenhower Auditorium this Tuesday, February 16, at 7:30 p.m.

While jazz might not be your thing, next Tuesday’s concert looks like it will be better than most. The performing sextet features pianist Kenny Barron, who was recently named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master. To get an idea what this means, other Jazz Masters include Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Horace Silver.

The group will also feature violinist Regina Carter, singer Kurt Elling, guitarist Russell Malone, bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Johnathan Blake, each respected musicians in their own right.

Tickets are available at Eisenhower and online and are only $20 for students.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
