Cape May review

My review of last weekend's 33rd edition of the Cape May Jazz Festival, with multiple photos, was posted today on JAZZTIMES.COM. There was much to enjoy on a fine spring weekend.

The musical treats included the mega-talented young blueswoman Shemekia Copeland (pictured), making her third Cape May appearance, and pianist Chuchito Vald├ęs, son of Chucho and grandson of Bebo).

Also strong: saxophonist Tim Warfield's organ quintet tribute to the late Shirley Scott, and Spyro Gyra's first Cape May visit, which drew a full house.
