9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

This is a rare treat! Each of the members of this 20+ member orchestra is a accomplished musician in their own right, with resumes going back 40 years are more. Some took arrangements that Coltrane wrote for a quartet and expanded it for a big band.
THe Venue on the campus of Cal State LA probably holds only a couple thousand seats, so the acoustics are really good. Parking is only $3.00
There are few jazz musicians who have been revolutionary and as widely imitated as saxophonist, John Coltrane. Conductor Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of John Coltrane in this tribute concert. His passion for experimentation helped his musical evolution take on a distinctive style. He became known for using the three-on-one chord approach, a method of playing multiple notes at one time. Coltrane’s influence extended far outside the realm of jazz. He hoped that his music could effect positive change in the world. More than thirty-seven years after his departure, Coltrane’s music can still be heard in movies, on television and radio.
