This year's Indy Jazz Fest will feature six days of music, leading to an outdoor concert at Opti-Park and the Indianapolis Arts Center with recording artist George Benson.
 
While Benson may have the highest mainstream profile, there's plenty of other talent in the lineup. Leading up to Benson on the main stage will be Spyro Gyra, Yellowjackets, Rufus Ried, and more. Meanwhile, the Jazz Legacy stage will offer saxophone trio Wow, Cathy Morris, and Indy Guitar Summit. And the Emerging Jazz Artists Stage will be dedicated to high school and college musicians.
 
The September 17 event caps a week of Indy Jazz Fest events at various venues, including APA Cole Porter Fellowship Award-winner Aaron Deihl at the Jazz Kitchen.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
