Last week’s question was: “What was the most memorable Jazz show you have seen and what made it so special?” Thank you for sharing your stories with us!
Sharon & Dean replied…
“The Forest Hills Jazz Festival, held on September 17, 1988, was special due to the amount of talent at one venue. The pre-concert performers were: Noel Pointer, Lonnie Liston Smith, Jon Hendricks & Co, and Roseanne Vitro. The headliners were: Stan Getz, Grover Washington Jr, Chuck Mangione, Gato Barbieri, Freddie Hubbard, and Angela Bofill. I remember the day was rainy, but that did not dampen the spirits of the audience or performers. What a great show for only $22.50! Unfortunately, some of these musicians are no longer with us, but will live on in their music.”

To Be, or Not … to Bop
By Dizzy Gillespie & Al Foster
“Just recently finished reading this great tome by Dizzy, as told to Al Fraser. Wish I’d read it while Diz was still here so I could have asked him about some of these experiences directly.”
– Mark Morganelli, Executive Director, Jazz Forum Arts
