Since 2008, I have been making the pilgrimage to the Detroit Jazz Fest. Alright, alright alright… I know I live in the city! That doesn’t mean that it’s any less stressful to get to the event every year. The 2015 was sure to be even more exciting for me after I heard who the resident artist would be – Pat Metheny. This was going to be the highlight of my summer as always.
In true fashion I made it down a few days and enjoyed myself. I posted a few pictures on Instagram and videos on Periscope. Pat was amazing and the festival is the unofficial end of summer in Detroit. Everyone shows up even if they don’t like jazz. The shit is free. The worst part about that is it’s a little difficult to enjoy the music. This is why I have found it very important to come down a few days at different times. The earlier it is the better your chances are to hear the music.
Whatever may be going on around town never really matters to me during this time. This is the only place I want to be. Until next year – get ya jazz on.
