Big Band Jam

Ninth Annual Big Band Jam! A celebration of the music, held this year in DC's Pershing Park, on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The City of Washington DC proclaimed April 23rd 2013 as "Andrew White Day" in honor of local legend, renowned jazz saxophonist and jazz scholar Andrew White.

Numerous ensembles and distinguished musicians performed, including Ernie Watts, and the Airmen of Note.

Many thanks for this festival (and for the assignment) go to the visionary and practical work of Harry Schnippers, proprietor of Blues Alley.

Dig it.
