The “Jazz Series” is an opportunity for OLLI members and their guests to enjoy live jazz and hear discussions about the history of a particular theme. This is a collaboration between OLLI and Florentine’s Grill on the northeast corner of Harbor Boulevard and Commonwealth Avenue in the heart of downtown Fullerton. There is no cover charge or admission fee. A reasonably priced lunch menu is available, and parking is convenient and safe. Kids are welcome!

The group is composed of three outstanding professional jazz musicians: Mike LeVan on piano, Brian Chapman on bass and Bob Forte on drums plus two local physicians: Jim Pearle on guitar and Joe Lawton on sax. Vocals are provided by "Living Jazz Award Winner" and one of the most outstanding jazz singers in Orange and LA counties, Elana Gilliam.
