Hot fun in the summertime is what the 30th San Jose Jazz Summer Fest was all about. With stages titled Swing, Blues / Big Easy, Salsa, Jazz Beyond and Gospel, you get a sense of what sounds were in the air. The festival was held August 9th through the 11th in beautiful downtown San Jose, California. From high school bands to rising stars like Aneesa Strings and Amy D., mix in jazz talents Dianne Reeves, Gregory Porter, Sons of Kemet, Fred Hersch, Marquis Hill, Charlie Hunter, Ivan Lins, Ray Obiedo, Emmet Cohen, Christoph Irniger, Shamarr Allen, Elio Villafranca, Carl Allen, Jeremy Pelt and Monty Alexander, and it adds up to a great weekend of music. From the music to the food vendors, it was truly another fine job by San Jose Jazz!
