The 33rd Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival is regarded as one of the Country’s largest free Jazz Festivals. This annual musical showcase celebrates jazz legends and up-and-coming jazz greats in venues throughout metropolitan Atlanta during the entire month of May. With the weather cooperating, Memorial Day weekend saw this year’s 2-day festival feature a host of national and local talent, plus dozens of vendors, kids activities and a Green theme at Piedmont Park. As usual, Robb Cohen was handy with his camera. Click here for more AJC staff photos from the festival. Tell us about what you saw and heard. How did it compare to previous Jazz Festivals?
