From a score of 1-10, the evening was a smashing 10+!!
A fabulous jazz quartet with some humor tossed in
at a lovely venue. The food service was good, but the
food.(crabcake sandwich)????

Loved the ambiance of the Rose Garden. Have been to several of the Jazz events at the Mariott and would rate all the others I attended far above this last performance.... continued

Spectacular setting. Gorgeous perfect night. Entertainment superb. Ernie Anderson and all of his musicians were superb. We felt priviledged to enjoy this evening. It was a genuine treat!

The music was outstanding and I liked the venue. HOWEVER: I ordered and paid for the Blue Section seats and got the worst table in the house.

The music and setting were nice, but it was a very old crowd... We actually didn't use the tickets... But we were able to enjoy it just as much from the fire pits just above with a glass of wine...

The venue was good, the music and sunset were great.
The tables were a little too close together and the servers were hard to flag down, but that was a minor inconvience.... continued

Dena Derose always puts on a solid performance where ever she plays. The added bonus this time around was the addition of Ann Paterson on tenor saxophone. Anne added some solid be-bop licks to compliment Dena's smooth movements on the keyboard.

Excellent program. Arrive early to avoid seating facing the setting sun until 6:30. West Coast Jazz Party has a good track record supporting straight ahead jazz.

Loved the music and the venue. However, the menu is very limited and the only wine available is $12 a glass. Be prepared for outside seating with extra wraps.
