Jazz at the Oxford will celebrate its 10th season with some favorites from past years.

Series passes are on sale now for the long-running jazz (and more) concerts, which take place from October through March. Shows start at 7 p.m. Fridays and 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and take place in The Oxford Hotel’s ballroom.

Eldon “T” Jones & N Touch is the season’s newcomer, performing a tribute to Grover Washington Jr. on Jan. 10 and 11.

Local musician and educator Georges Bouhey will once again host workshops with the performing musicians at 11:15 a.m. Saturday of every performance weekend in the lower level of the hotel, a news release said.
