Nobody likes jazz. People say they do, but they really don’t. Why? Because jazz has little to no relevance in today’s culture. Like classical and opera, jazz has been relegated to dead-art appreciation centers, and the musicians who play it now seem more interested in carefully preserving the past instead of advancing the form. Trying to change this sad state of modern-day jazz affairs is trumpeter Jonathan Greenberg. The longtime Richmond musician is host to his monthly showcase at Bogart’s in the Fan on Monday, Nov. 10, with his stellar cast of rotating players, the Jazz Warriors. For people who forget that jazz was the principal music form of the early 20th century, Greenberg is here to remind you how vital the music still can be. Doors starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $5. bogartsinthefan.com.
