Faith, Hope and Jazz! is a weekly experiment in jazz worship and community experience, sponsored by Monte Vista Church. We meet each week at Monte Vista Fire Station on Central Ave., Nob Hill [map/directions], every Thursday at 7pm, and features a different jazz quartet each week, from some of Albuquerque's finest jazz musicians.
