Expect plenty of jazz at Mendocino Music Festival

See also

The Mendocino Music Festival is among the north state’s best summer events. The 28th annual festival, set for July 12-16 under the big top and other Mendocino locations, features a wide variety of genres, from classical and bluegrass to plenty of pop and, yes, jazz.
You can check out the festival’s jazz lineup below. Also bear in mind that if you cannot make it up the coast in July, you can sample the Mendocino vibe at a festival preview set for April 26 at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. The evening will feature fine food and drink along with a performance by Kim Nalley and the Julian Pollack Trio.
