Went to the free Piccolo Spoleto Jazz Festival event at the Robert Mills Manor yesterday (thursday). It was incredible- got to hear the Franklin Street Five and Latoya Smith bang out some incredible music followed by some of the legends of the Jenkins Orphanage including Oscar Rivers and Lonnie Hamilton. The whole thing was a tribute to William Blake (from the Jenkins Orphanage) sponsored by the Jake Savage Foundation who are bringing music and instruments to low income kids. Jack McCray was doing everything except picking up the sax himself. It was a great day with kids running around getting their face painted and musicians playing long and loud only for the love of the music and the event.
