We sigh a big, satisfied sigh that you picked Indy Jazz Fest as best local festival. After all, it is one of Indianapolis’ premiere cultural events, bringing legends to the same stages that locals play over more than ten days. Last year, NUVO jazz correspondent Rita Kohn noted that one of the most touching moments was when Everett Green invited Brenda Williams back on stage and the two improvised an endearing duet. Keep your eyes out for this year’s Jazz Fest announcement, which should be happening very soon, if not before this edition’s print date.
