THURSDAY PICK | Twin Cities Jazz Festival swings into Mears Park


The Twin Cities have a quietly swingin’ jazz scene, but for the past 14 years it’s had one very unquiet weekend each year: the Twin Cities Jazz Festival, in Mears Park. Delfeayo Marsalis (how many other Marsalises are there that we don’t know about?), Francisco Mela, Luco Chiarla, the Araya Orta Latin Jazz Quartet, and Minnesota’s own Bad Plus are among the artists who will be heard this year from June 28-30.

Coverage of issues and events affecting Central Corridor communities is funded in part by a grant from the Central Corridor Collaborative.
