Jym Marks Quartet: Remembering Miles

Saturday, January 9, 2016

Jym Marks—public speaker, publisher, poet, and author—has been called “Menlo Park’s Renaissance Man.” He’s also the drummer in his own jazz quartet.

Jazz lovers unite, as the Menlo Park Library presents a free concert from the local group, the Jym Marks Quartet.

Refreshments will be served. No reservation is necessary to attend.  This event is made possible by contributions to the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.
