The organizers for the Annual Hyde Park Jazz Festival did an outstanding job again this year as thousands swayed and finger popped to the excellent line-up of performers in the Hyde Park area on Chicago's South Side. In late 2006 when cultural leaders on the South Side met with the Hyde Park Jazz Society to develop the annual event, they probably had no idea that the event would last as long and maintain a quality that is second to none in the region.
The 10th Annual, two-day Festival included more than 34 programs on 13 stages across the Hyde Park neighborhood. The concerts represented the creative diversity in Chicago jazz and featured some of the most compelling, emerging, and venerable artists on the local and national scene.
Keep it going and congratulations Hyde Park Jazz Festival!!!!
