Great Fest! -- Dennis

Hope you were at the Pentacrest at some point this weekend for the Iowa City Jazz Festival. The weather was perfect, and the music spectacular. Our 20-hour live broadcast of the Festival ended with a delightful set from the Ben Allison Quartet Sunday afternoon (Record company restrictions would not allow us to broadcast the Derek Trucks Band Sunday night).

We'll be re-broadcasting the Festival on Labor Day, so you can catch what you may have missed, and Bob Stewart's interviews with the headliners will be posted on the web site this week.

What did you think of the Festival? Post your replies below!

Another great JazzFest!
Do you guys have any access to any of Steve Gizamore's music? He's appearantly the glue, I'm realizing, of this entire festival every year.
He's brilliant and charming up there in 'performance mode'!
I'd especially be interested if any of his solo material could be obtained on cassette tape.
Let me know!
