Jazz is Back

After all the standing ovations and encores, the band received an open invitation to return to the festival in Montreux—and they plan to go back next summer. But first they've come home to share the excitement with their Sarasota fans and treat us to another year of great music. Head out to the Irish Rover to hear a long-time favorite or something new, and maybe even a story about Europe.
