If blues is the father and jazz the mother then their legacy has nurtured an overflowing basket with its musical fruits. Its genes continue to fuse in artists singing R&B, soul, hip-hop and more and this year’s San Diego Jazz Fest will properly showcase that musical tree. R. Kelly, Maxwell, Toni Braxton, and Erika Badu among other jazz acts will put your senses into cool mode over the spectacular weekend. Jazz it up or jazz it down, whatever your mood there will surely be a tune.
May 22 – 24
