21st San Jose Jazz hip!!

    From the weather to the huge crowd to the GREAT and hip. I loved the Blues Stage and the Salsa Stage. People were dancing and clapping and laughing and smiling and the children were happy too!

Walked into the Blues Stage area and here were these mint vintage Chevys. Made me think of my dad and his Big Band, and the jazz all stars of his era. And how he sat in with his jazz tenor sax with every big band name and met everyone and had the time of his life!
