It was a perfect day to watch and listen to many musicians and bands on Friday, the second day of the free 18th Annual Twin Cities Jazz Festival, held in Mears Park, a beautiful little gem situated in the middle of downtown St. Paul.
On the main stage, the Jazz Women All Stars lit up the crowd, followed by many other musicians performing on four different stages that surrounded the park. Friday's evening of music ended with a performance by veteran and legendary New Orleans pianist Ellis Marsalis, the patriarch of several other well-known jazz musicians and composers.
If you missed the music on Thursday and Friday, hustle downtown to enjoy more jazz today, the last day of the festival.
"Jazz music creates so many phenomenal figures." Wynton Marsalis
