The 8th annual 2017 Montclair Jazz festival in Nishuan Park in Montclair NJ came alive on August 12 with the sights and sounds of jazz. Actress S, Epatha Merkerson, from the hit TV series "Law and Order" was once again mistress of ceremonies along with WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM announcer Gary Walker. This festival had performances by Dee Dee Bridgewater and her Memphis Soulphony band, Cyrus Chestnut, Christian McBride situation band and the talented Jazz House Kids youth performers and staff ensembles. Here are just a few photo's I feel capture the spirit of this wonderful festival.
