“It has brought together a lot of different people from different walks of life who share a common love of jazz music,” he says.

Artists MacDonough has presented or who are scheduled to play this year include Eric Alexander, David Hazeltine, Steve Davis, Geoffrey Keezer, Seamus Blake, Harold Mabern, Jimmy Heath, Brian Blade, Peter Bernstein and many regional musicians, such as Miles Black and Blake Angelos.
