The 2017 Montclair Jazz Festival — Best Yet! (VIDEO)

It was a free, fun and fantastically musical day at Nishuane Park when the 2017 Montclair Jazz Festival brought performances by Cyrus Chestnut, Dee Dee Bridgewater & Memphis Soulphony and A Christian McBride Situation as well as the amazingly talented Jazz House Kids youth performers and staff ensembles. The weather was comfortable (with only a brief spot of cooling rain); food and fun activities at the Family Jazz Discovery Zone kept families happy and there was plenty of beer at the North Coast Brewers beer garden. Even Stephen Colbert dropped by! If you weren’t there, you missed a great time!
