Although it was my first year at the Jamboree, I did one thing absolutely right, attending with two jazz lovers who'd been to the Jamboree since its first years of creation. It is so obvious that the performers are world-class musicians. Being around so many people who appreciate good music is an awe-inspiring experience. Many times so poignant I was close to tears. I'm a journalist and good with words, yet am at a loss trying to describe the feeling present during that week. I'll give it a weak shot: Camaraderie, spirit, a common beauty, soul. My only regret is that I've missed so many years in the past, not understanding what Sun Valley's got going that last week of October. I'm now a jazz convert, something I'll share with my siblings, children, grandchildren and friends. Huge bravos to those who worked so hard to put this together! http://appetiteforidaho.blogspot.com/2012/11/sun-valley-music-in-mountains.html ---Look, you even inspired a blog. Loved every minute, can't thank you enough. ~Amy Larson
