You might not know them by name, but the Godfathers of Groove are three jazz and R&B heavyweights who have been among the most important players during the past 50 years -- Reuben Wilson (organ), Bernard Purdie (drums) and Grant Green Jr. (guitar). Their chemistry as a trio is unmistakable, and you shouldn't miss your chance to see them at one of the Midwest's best clubs.

The Godfathers of Groove will play Nighttown, on Cleveland's east side, on Thursday, December 27. For show info, click here.
