I am one of those who doesn’t usually attend JazzFest because it is a little too heavy on the blues and too light on jazz for me. Besides, I invariably seem to have kids involved in other day-long activities the same weekend. That said, I strongly encourage anyone in the area to check it out. It is certainly one of the music highlights of the year. There’s more detail in the local daily’s ersatz entertainment supplement.
Jazz isn’t dead. It just smells funny.
