If you like your nights on the chill side and you have a passion for Jazz then Cool Canyon Nights is where you need to be on Thursday.

This week is Jazz Night at the canyon.

El Paso's Billy Townes, known for his unique take on the contemporary jazz sound, is this week's featured artist. Townes will play some original material from his latest CD's, and engage in a fun, lively "Piano Duel" with fellow musician Ruben Gutierrez.

Music on the patio starts at 6 p.m., with Towns and his band - Jim Foster on bass, Demetrius Williams on drums, Steve Marquez on guitar, and Ben Newsome on sax - on the ampitheatre stage at 7:30 p.m.

Food trucks, as well as local vendors and artists will also be part of the mix.
