Jazz in L.A.: Angel City Jazz Festival


81-year-old guitar innovator Kenny Burrell weighs in on Angel City Jazz Festival. “Count Basie once said that many of the great innovators were just being themselves. The festival’s theme this year [“Innovative Artists Celebrate Their Legendary Mentors in Concert”] is a very interesting concept that’ll be inspiring and rewarding to both the younger generation and established musicians. And I think it will be a wonderful experience for the audience to witness the interaction between them.”
