SPOTLIGHT SAN DIEGO ARTS

Jazz

December 23, 1987|THOMAS K. ARNOLD

- La Jolla attorney Don Glaser, who moonlights as a jazz singer-pianist in local nightclubs, was recently honored by the Lower Southern California Jazz Society as its Jazz Musician of the Year. His "Jeannie Award" is named after veteran San Diego jazz singer Jeannie Cheatham.

Five years ago, Glaser recorded an album with be-bop greats Ray Brown and the late Shelly Manne, which continues to get regular air play on Los Angeles jazz radio stations KKGO-FM and KLON-FM.

This month, he begins an indefinite engagement at Vic's in La Jolla, performing every Wednesday and Thursday night with bassist Marshall Hawkins, a former sideman of Miles Davis, and drummer John Harris, who has played with Carmen McRae and Horace Silver.
