No other festival experience in town feels quite as homey and discovery-charged as WJF, during which showgoers stroll freely between multiple close-range venues, marveling, mingling and comparing notes. The roster for this ninth installment is typically stacked, featuring elders such as Lee Konitz; newbies like Rafiq Bhatia; and a healthy number of wild cards, including a Gil Scott-Heron tribute starring Dead Prez rhymesmith M1.
