The evening skies over Albuquerque should glow more brightly than ever this summer as the New Mexico Jazz Workshop marks its 40th year by presenting a colorful and exciting series of concerts “Under the Stars” at the Albuquerque Museum’s spacious amphitheater, 2000 Mountain Road NW.

The weekly amalgam of jazz, blues and salsa, which runs from June 3 through August 13, is ranging farther afield this year with a number of groups from out of state set to complement the established troupe of local artists who reappear from summer to summer to charm and entice their devoted audiences.

All shows are held at the Albuquerque Museum Amphitheater (2000 Mountain Road NW, Albuquerque, NM)

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Children 12 and under are free.
