It’s been a great summer for jazz in Philadelphia.

 
It’s been a great summer for jazz in Philadelphia. There were weekly outdoor jazz festivals and concerts, real music performed by skilled musicians. This summer highlighted Philadelphias a town with a deep jazz heritage, strong jazz appreciation, and a host of current expert practitioners.
 
 
 
As part of a summer of non stop live jazz, the Coltrane House presented the Abdur Rashid Group July 27. This free outdoor concert was given in front of the House with Coltrane fans, friends, neighbors, and passersby enjoying performance by five master musicians. The Lancaster Avenue Jazz Festival, July 20 and Jazz on the Ave, August 17 were two noteworthy community oriented free events that presented an eclectic mix of jazz styles.  
 
 
 
The beauty of these free outdoor concerts and festivals was the combination of  exceptional musicianship and  relaxed, neighborly atmosphere. People enjoyed each other’s company, outstanding music as well as interaction with the musicians. There were no barriers between performers and audience, and performers mingled and chatted with friends and fans in the audience during breaks and after sets.
 
 
 
Outdoor jazz festivals and concerts are excellent family and community events because the attracted audience values the music and recognizes and admires the musical acumen required. These are pleasant and peaceful occasions where musicianship is the focus of attention.

The calendar summer, however, does not end until September 21, two days before JohnColtrane’s birthday. Check our events page for what’s going on around town the weekend of Sept. 20 to celebrate TRANE’S BIRTHDAY!
