3rd Annual Betsy Jazz Festival 2016

By The Betsy-South Beach (other events)

13 Dates Through Mar 20, 2016


Jazz is a great big sea. It washes up all kinds of fish and shells and … waves with a steady old beat, or off beat…. The sun pulls the moon. The moon pulls the sea. They also pull jazz and me ... To me jazz is a montage of a dream deferred. A great big dream—yet to come—and always yet—to become ultimately and finally true.  Jazz is a heartbeat—­its heartbeat is yours.  - Langston Hughes, Poet (1956)
