Savannah Music Festival LIVE 723 – Late Night Jazz Jam 2014

Legend has it that when Coleman Hawkins squared off against Lester Young in a late night jam in the late 1930s at a Kansas City nightclub, a new saxophone king was crowned who would forever be known as “Prez.” Each year, SMF presents a late night jam to wrap up a week of Swing Central Jazz, typically with a “house band” that holds the bandstand, inviting a variety of soloists to participate throughout the evening. The 2014 late night jazz jam featured the Christian McBride Trio with special guests including Wycliffe Gordon, Terell Stafford, Marcus Roberts, Cyrus Chestnut, Etienne Charles and many more.
