Great people putting on an outstanding festival in a wondrous setting. We have gone for 5 years and it is always one of the best events of the year. The SVJJ goes to great effort to promote jazz with younger generations and it is evident each year as new groups come to the festival. They also go into the community and work with the schools and churches to promote jazz. A great combination of entertainment and doing good.
