Good news for jazz aficionados and connoisseurs: Concert impresario Elana Byrd has announced that she will continue the Joe Byrd jazz concerts in 2013. Joe and Elana Byrd had chosen the full 2012 slate of artists before his death March 7 in an auto accident near his Edgewater home. Elana Byrd decided to continue the planned season, bringing major jazz musicians to Annapolis. Downtown Annapolis is in its 40th consecutive year as a showcase for jazz — a legacy of local guitarist Charlie Byrd, his brother, bassist Joe, and entrepreneur Paul Pearson, who in 1972 opened the King of France Tavern at the Maryland Inn, where jazz royalty was featured for nearly 30 years.

I like to talk more than actually play music," jazz guitarist Rob Levit told his audience at Annapolis High School on Thursday morning. About 450 students - roughly one-quarter of the school's population - was being treated to a performance by Levit and his jazz trio, featuring bassist Amy Shook and drummer Frank Russo, as a reward for making honor roll the previous semester. Levit, who has appeared at the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington and many other top venues, is an artist-in-residence at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.

John Collins, 83, a jazz guitarist primarily known for his longtime association with Nat King Cole, died Oct. 4 in West Los Angeles. Mr. Collins had been battling cancer. Beni Montresor, 78, who conjured magical, dreamlike images in the children's books he illustrated and the sets and costumes he designed for opera productions around the world, died Thursday in Verona, Italy, near the village where he was born. Irmgard Farden Aluli, 89, a songwriter and performer whose many tenderly eloquent compositions in a career of more than 70 years made her one of the last links to a golden era of Hawaiian popular music, died Oct. 4 in Honolulu.

On the cover of his latest jazz record, "From the Heart," Kim Waters is a portrait in cool: contemporary black T-shirt, natty mustache, vapor trail of a smile. He looks as though he could mow his yard in silk pajamas and not splash grass on himself. Waters is the Phil Jackson of contemporary jazz. When Waters was left stranded in a Florida hotel this year and missed most of a gig, he stayed cool. When Waters dropped his signature white-coated saxophone in Norfolk - the equivalent of Shaq fouling out of a Lakers game - Waters kept his cool.
