Jazz singer Dena DeRose balances spontaneity, storytelling (via Detroit Free Press)

Last year’s inaugural edition of Alexander Zonjic’s Shoreline Jazz Festival at Heritage Landing in Muskegon proved popular enough with the public that the event is back for a second year with a promising lineup of populist jazz-influenced fusion, R&B and the like. The headliner lineup this year is heavy on singers, including Al Jarreau, Will Downing and Betty LaVette. Zonjic, the metro Detroit flutist who doubles as the festival director, will appear with keyboardist Alex Bugnon.

This music runs 1-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Heritage Landing, Muskegon. One-day passes are $25 (bring your own lawn chair). Preferred seating, $50 (chairs provided). 800-585-3737. Maps and more details: www.shorelinejazzfestival.com.
