Hyde Park Jazz Festival

Marguerite MariamaMichael Ross & Frank ParkerThe Jazz fest was another outstanding effort, brought to us by the Hyde Park Alliance for Arts and Culture, the University of Chicago and the Hyde Park Jazz Society. This is the third event and it featured over 100 jazz artists. Some of the artists I covered were, Marguerite Mariama, Edwin Sanchez Latin Jazz Band and Julia Huff. All of these artists were just great. I know that Julia does regular appearances in the city and she is sensational. I was not disappointed by anyone at this event.
