Thanks to those many jazz fans who came to the Upper Mississippi Jazz Society’s 32nd annual Jazz Festival last Saturday, July 13. Many stayed for the entire afternoon! (A beautiful summer day really helped).
Thanks also to Winona State University for sharing their beautiful campus and especially Aaron Young of the Shakespeare Festival and his crew who erected the large tent and supplied chairs.
Jefferson Pub provided excellent food and beverages and Mark Jelinek of La Crosse, Wis., did a great job running his sound system.
Special thanks to Dave Forrest who contacted the musicians and managed the entire affair.
