The Last week, CL detailed the Jazz on the Deuces event happening at St. Petersburg’s historic Manhattan Casino, but the jazz coverage doesn’t stop there this weekend. Blame it on the collective of artists taking over the lawn at East Tampa’s Edison Elementary during Jazz on the Lawn, which hopes to bring awareness to the fact that underserved communities can only change if the citizenry does every little bit it can to be more engaged in the fight to close income gaps in the most intentional and sustainable way.

Jazz On The Lawn w/Trumaine Burrell/Marlon Boone/Blu Davis/the Straz Jazz Ensemble/Nathan Mitchell. Sat. Oct. 12, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. $10-$45. Edison Elementary School, Tampa.
