We are fortunate to live within walking distance of the Summer of Jazz, "regularly touted in 'Downbeat Magazine' as Colorado's premier Jazz Music Concert Series." http://www.summerofjazz.com/
For the second season the festival is honoring musicians from New Orleans. This week we were wowed by Bob French's Original Tuxedo Jazz Band. http://www.satchmo.com/nolavl/bobfrench.htmlThis band has been around since 1910, making it the longest continuously performing jazz band in New Orleans. At one time, Louis Armstrong was a band member! If this band is performing anywhere near you, you won't be disappointed by spending some time with them.
