What an incredible series! Thank you all! With close to 70 one-of-a-kind events over 30 days, in venues all around the community, this festival felt so good and sounded so good, and, as you’ll see in this brilliant work by Daniel Sheehan (and at danielsheehan.com), it looked so good. Thanks to all of the incredible artists, and to YOU, for making the 30th Annual Earshot Jazz Festival the best ever!
