Detroit Jazz Festival
The Detroit Jazz Festival has been showcasing World-Class Jazz for 42 consecutive years. We have been honored to host the Jazz Talk Tent since its birth in 1994. We thank Gretchen Valade, our East-side Jazz Angel, for rescuing our festival and setting it on a upward trajectory, Chris Collins, Artistic Director and President of the DJFF, for his audacious programming, and Tom Robinson (Mack Avenue Records) for sponsoring us. Some of our features were first published in DJF program booklets, and we thank the Festival for permission to use them. Check out the DJF website: http://www.detroitjazzfest.com
