The Fifth Third "It's Commonly Jazz" series returns to the Queen City for its 26th year of presenting quality jazz that is free to the public.

Over the years, this wonderful event has featured some of the most accomplished jazz musicians from around the world. Also returning is the "Going Green" and sustainability theme, with T-Shirts and other promotional items made with organic and recycled materials. The organizers and sponsors of It's Commonly Jazz are extremely passionate about the sustainable efforts to help preserve the earth.

With love for our environment also comes love for the music, with a magnificent lineup:

Aug. 4th - WOW, presented by Jazz Alive

Aug. 11th - Dixie Karas Sextet

Aug. 18th - Kenny Phelps Quartet

Aug. 25th - Tim Warfield & the Unusual Suspects
