Celebrating it's 40th anniversary the 2017 Freihofer Saratoga Jazz Festival taking place at Saratoga's Performing Arts center in Saratoga Springs N.Y June 24th and 25th, had a great lineup of musicians performing a wide range of music for everyone's listening pleasure. Musicians who came to join the celebration included Jean-Luc Ponty
, Cecile McLorin Salvant
and the Gipsy Kings
just to name a few. I have included several photos that captured the spirit and sounds of this venerable festival. Read R.J. DeLuke's coverage of this year's festival.
