WEEKEND FORECAST | HOT TICKET

Swingers unlimited

February 15, 2007

It's an almost irresistible combination: the loose, laid-back atmosphere of a jazz party, taking place in the elegant O.C. environs of the Marriott Newport Beach Hotel & Spa. And when the music at the annual Newport Beach Jazz Party is described, accurately, as "right down the middle and straight ahead," you know that the jazz will be melodic, swinging, inventive and entertaining. Which won't be a problem for an all-star lineup that includes the John Pizzarelli Trio, the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, the Ken Peplowski-Dan Barrett Quintet, flutist Holly Hofmann's Jazz Quartet playing the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Tom Scott and the Shelly Berg Trio and many more world-class artists.

The Newport Beach Jazz Party, Marriott Newport Beach Hotel & Spa, 900 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach. Today through Sunday. Complete party, $315 to $340; individual events: $30 to $70. (949) 759-5003. www.newportbeachjazzparty.com
