I attended the JazzWorks event and I have to say that it is a fabulous incarnation of the former Jazz Under the Stars event. The bands were very energetic (even on a hot day) and the crowd grew as the evening progressed. I noticed more diversity in the guests, too. The new kitchenette/serving area is a fantastic addition to the terrace, and the lights for the band/stage area helped to extend visibility. The New Orleans showcase is really fun, too. All in all, a very pleasant evening. April M.
