Jazz Around Town: Festing

Well, it's time for another major neighborhood festival. This week it is in my neighborhood, Park Ave. (well, a bit down the street as I'm in the ABC streets East of Culver). Another one down... only one more major to go and then... I won't say the word.  Hey, by the way, if you'd rather be at the Newport Jazz Festival, you can do so virtually through NPR
