Last week Wilmington played host to the 21st Annual Clifford Brown Jazz Festival on Rodney Square, in the center of downtown. There were a variety of styles featured, from Ivan Neville's Funk, to the Latin sounds of Pete Escovedo's Orchestra, to the more straight ahead jazz of Jazz Attack, The Bad Plus, Jason Moran, and last but not least, the wild and energetic 79 year old Roy Haynes and his Band. There is always a chance of rain (which we had several periods of) but there was also a chance to hear some great jazz at the largest FREE outdoor jazz festival on the east coast. It concluded Sunday night with a free performance of Duke Ellington's Sacred Music Concert at the Grand Opera House, a restored late 19th C performance space, featuring a great band, the Wilmington Chorus, the Wilmington Children's Chorus, and the Pieces of a Dream dance troupe. If you love jazz, look for the 22nd Annual Festival next June!
