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.

Very good show and a very fitting tribute to J. J. Johnson. I found it interesting, however, that, for a tribute to a famous trombonist, the 'bone section was not as strong as the trumpets!

More Information


The LJO will perform its homage to J.J. Johnson, one of the leading jazz musicians of the post-swing era. Regarded as one of the first trombonists to embrace bebop music, J.J. Johnson was a key player and innovator in this definitive style. Collaborating with jazz greats including Dizzy and Miles, Johnson blazed a path for himself in the bebop movement doing for the trombone what Charlie Parker did for the saxophone.
