67th Monterey Jazz Festival

Since 1958, the Monterey Jazz Festival has presented thousands of legendary jazz musicians and rising stars. I was lucky enough to visit many years ago, in 2000. This year’s lineup is pretty impressive: the Festival will run on the weekend of September 27th to September 29th. The three different stages are the Jimmy Lyons Stage, the Tim Jackson Stage, and the West End Stage presented by Castoro Cellars, one of the best vineyards on the Central Coast.
