From jazz and beyond, the Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts is host to a diverse parade of talent. But there's nothing that quite captures the heart of this special place than when venue honcho and accomplished jazz guitarist Chris Cortez comes out from behind the scenes to take the limelight himself.
