The Crosstown Jazz Series, presented by Strictly Jazz Entertainment in collaboration with Crosstown Arts, is designed to salute classic jazz music as contemporary musicians perform the work of the legends.

About Bill Hurd:

Dr. Bill Hurd, a retired eye surgeon, has earned numerous awards as a jazz saxophonist and has released four albums on CD. He holds degrees from Notre Dame, MIT, and Meharry Medical College. He was also an all-American track & field athlete and is the current Notre Dame record holder in the 100-meter and 200-meter distance races.

About Strictly Jazz Entertainment:

Strictly Jazz Entertainment is committed to cultivating a growing community in the knowledge and appreciation of jazz. We facilitate dialogue and collaboration between the devoted supporters of jazz and the brand new constituents – those new to the genre – for the furthering of the jazz community. We provide a bridge between leading artists and a community that typically does not embrace jazz by promoting concerts in various venues to generate an atmosphere that is viable for the absorption of pure jazz.
