Alan Grant's Monday Night Jazz Sessions begin in the French Quarter Lounge.
“...For the last couple of months, the Four Queens Hotel has presented Alan Grant's Monday Night Jazz Sessions in its French Quarter lounge, using local quartets such as those of Carl Fontana and Carl Saunders to back up such big names as Lew Tabakin, Don Menza, and Joe Farrell. Carl Fontana, of course is a big name on his own, and Carl Saunders is a ferocious player who seems to jolt the last volt from every cell in his body into every bar he plays...
...Now a contract has been signed between the Four Queens and KNPR 89.5 FM under which an hour of each of the sessions will be broadcast live every Monday night at 10 pm. for the next year under the name Jazz Night; live from the Four Queens with Alan Grant. Jazz is here to stay in Las Vegas. Grant, recently voted top jazz DJ in New York, is well known throughout the jazz world, and will bring us the very best.
Scheduled for coming weeks are the Kenny Burrell Quartet, the return of Joe Farrell with his own exciting new quartet, the Tommy Vig combo, and Richie Cole..."
