On Saturday, April 5, mediabistro.com and Jazz at Lincoln Center combined forces to present Jazz Battles at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. Nearly 300 media professionals sat back and enjoyed jazz tunes and wonderful wine compliments of Kim Crawford Wines. Performing in the Jazz Battles was Eric Johnson, Mike Moreno, and the Danny Grissett Trio.
A very special thank you to Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola for providing a perfect setting for the Jazz Battles. Also, our thanks go out to Kim Crawford Wine for providing the savory wine that was enjoyed by all.
