Jazz Events for South Florida (and beyond) for Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018

To honor our great friend, Mike Orta, the South Florida Jazz List will be published a little later today! Thank you!

From Nicky Orta: I am sad to say that Mike passed away today at 2:47 p.m. That being said, he went absolutely peacefully in his sleep surrounded by loved ones (and listening to Keith Jarrett). He was an amazing human being, pianist, brother, son, father, partner, and grandfather. He was loved by so many people and will be remembered by all of them and us. I’ve never seen someone grab life by the horns like Mike did – even when faced with a diagnosis of a terminal disease.

Here’s to you, Mike! I love you!
