Michigan Jazz Festival 2007

This year’s Michigan Jazz Festival at Schoolcraft College was another resounding success. It was a pleasure to see that large audiences can be drawn to jazz when the surroundings are congenial. Midge Ellis and her volunteers should be congratulated for creating this ideal setting for listening to some great music.
