Sunday night at the jazz festival

It was a great Sunday afternoon and evening to kick off the 36th annual Savannah Jazz Festival at the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort. The big band sounds of the Parris Island Marine Band really set the mood and seemed to inspire the players in the Armstrong University Band. The evening ended with a jam session hosted by Teddy Adams and a crew of area players. The event will continue this week with a full schedule of music and featuring a tribute to Savannah's own Ben Tucker and the premiere Tuesday of a documentary based on his illustrious life and career and tragic death in 2013. checkout the lineup at the festival's website
