The World Stage, a Leimert Park landmark founded in 1989 by the late jazz drummer Billy Higgins and poet Kamau Daáood, has long been home base for great local talent. It’s one of the best places to hone your skills as a musician, as well as get the most blunt feedback you could possibly hope for: If you aren’t up to snuff at the World Stage jam session, well, someone will tell you. You can still hit their jazz concerts, though, as an appreciative – and humbled – audience member. The performance space also hosts spoken word, drum circles, jam sessions, and jazz and poetry workshops.
