This Labor Day weekend will featured the 32nd annual edition of the Detroit Jazz Festival.  Hopefully some of you can make it over to Detroit for this event.  http://www.detroitjazzfest.com/11lineup.html

This guy Rafael Ricky Statin attended my high school.  http://www.detroitjazzfest.com/11lineuprafael2.html
 Clap  Granted he was born 2 years after I graduated.  Man I am getting old.

Any chance that anyone will be making it up to Detroit for this festival this weekend?  There is a small possibility that I might stop by after the Tigers' game on Saturday, but it is probably unlikely.

Its too far to drive from Memphis, sounds like a cool festival though.

An article in the paper which sums up the festival.  It appears that weather and an appearance to the city by President Obama put a damper on things but it appears as though there were still some highlights.  http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20110906/ENT04/109060311/1032/ent/Jazz-fest-keeps-things-hot-despite-storm--traffic

Know only half of names on the list, not a fan of Amina Figarova, saw Dianne Reeves few years ago live. Angelique Kidjo sings somewhere near my hometown few times every year. I expect Joe Lovano was a real headliner though.
