Jamal Ahmad is your emcee as Atlanta's High Museum of Art welcomes keyboardist Louis Herriveaux for the May edition of Friday Jazz At The High, May 16 from 5p until 10p.

You can beat the traffic, take in the High's latest exhibits, including the last week of Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, and dig jazz music from Louis Herriveaux. We don't think there is a better way to spend a Friday evening.
