Thanks for the overall report. I was saddened to hear about what went on with BB and glad I wasn't there to see the pimpin of these great musicians. I suppose the music festival will be graded on how well it did commercially as an economic impact for the city and promoters. I wouldn't trust the numbers that will eventually get published from a promoter that claimed to have a large amount of experience producing Jazz festivals in other cities and barely had any Jazz musicians in this one. This producer and the city misrepresented the festival by calling it Jazz and gives marketing a bad name. I have been a Jazzer all my life and realize full well that it is a minor genre that never gets it just deserts and the beat goes on in Baltimore. As was suggested in a previous Sun article, if there is a next year, call it a music festival.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
