AARP MN & the Twin Cities Jazz Festival Present Jazz Fest Live Featuring the JazzMN Quintet
The musicians of the JazzMN Quintet are all members of the JazzMN Orchestra. They present a historical view of various artists that employed this instrumentation beginning with its infancy in the swing era, into its standardization in bebop, through its heyday of the hard bop era, and more modern explorations in the 1960s and beyond.
The presentation was moderated by JC Sanford, JazzMN Orchestra’s Artistic Director.
