Red Hook Jazz Fest 2010 concludes on a high note

The final show of the Red Hook Jazz Festival's 2010 season was a great success with one of the biggest crowds yet on a gorgeous day.  Upwards of 250 people came to the Urban Meadow to enjoy six bands, who offered a wide range of jazz from avante garde to latin jazz to a beautiful jazz guitar duo. One thing we learned - crickets love music!

Marco Cappelli Trio leader Marco Cappelli:

Ideal Bread played the music of Steve Lacy:

Ben Perowsky Trio - Chris Speed on saxaphone:

Willie Martinez La Familia Sextet sang their cover of "Sunny", which always delights the crowd:
