Jazz riffs

February 8, 2008
Yesterday, the announcement was made that Aretha Franklin would be headlining this year’s Indy Jazz Fest. More acts, of course, to follow.

Three questions :

1. Who else would you like to see on the lineup this year?
2. More provocatively, who wouldn’t you like to see on the lineup this year?
3. How broadly should the Fest define “jazz”?

OK, four questions  ...

4. The 2008 Kroger Indy Jazz Fest Presented by Coca-Cola is the official title of the event. While sponsorship is a wonderful thing—many events wouldn’t happen without the support of such companies—at what point do naming rights get awkward beyond usefulness?

Your thoughts on any or all of the above?
