Doctor Dee on Jazz

April is Jazz Appreciation Month. If you’re like me, you appreciate it year round, but I’d like to take this opportunity to make the effort to find a new group, a new venue, or a new series to check out. With that in mind, I’ll be sharing here the ones I know about in our area – Skagit and Whatcom counties.
