Jazz review: Chris West and friends bring jazz to the Family Wash

When the unassuming saxophonist Chris West picked up his horn for the first time on Wednesday night at the Family Wash, it was easy to tell who in the audience knew of him and who was about to learn.  Those familiar with West stopped talking, turned their chairs towards the stage and waited. And, after […]
