Bass Museum of Art kicks off their famed winter jazz series, Cool Nights Hot Jazz, on February 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. with pianist/composer Mike Orta.

Held in the museum’s café and lounge designed by Chicago-based artist Dzine, the vibrant wall-to-wall mural painted with kaleidoscopic swirls and electric colors is the perfect backdrop for musical exploration.
