The BNY Mellon Presents JazzLive series will celebrate its 15th year of presenting jazz performances in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District with a Jan. 15 all-star jam session.

Led by legendary drummer Roger Humphries and RH Factor, the event is set for 7-10 p.m. in the Greer Cabaret Theater, 655 Penn Ave.

The 15th anniversary celebration is free, but seating is very limited, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust says. Guests will be admitted to the theater as space becomes available.

”Jazz artists who have performed for the JazzLive series will be the evening’s guests of honor, mingling with the jazz community to celebrate the program’s 15th anniversary year, and its significant contribution to jazz in the Pittsburgh region,” according to the release. “Mr. Humphries was also the recipient of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s inaugural JazzLive Legacy Award in April 2018 that is presented to a regional jazz artist for their incredible contributions to jazz in Pittsburgh and beyond.”

BNY Mellon Presents JazzLive is a year-round free live jazz series taking place 5-8 p.m. Tuesdays in Cultural District venues including the Backstage Bar, Theater Square and Katz Plaza.

The series has enabled the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to showcase hundreds of regional performers in the heart of the Cultural District since 2004.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
