This year’s edition of the city’s roaming ode to Bird features another boundary-pushing bill, which includes the new lineup of jazz trio the Bad Plus (with Orrin Evans on keys), R&B-inspired trumpeter Keyon Harrold and Adam O’Farrill, the postbopping son of bandleader Arturo (and grandson of the equally legendary Chico).

I´m already there... closing my eyes and feeling the bird all around. Floating in the park, with the taste of the air, the rain, the fog... mesmerized by every single feeling this master´s music feed me with. Oh I´m already there... 

Gives you every reason to travel uptown. Great venue, mellow crowd, world class musicians, jazz legends, all for free. Be glad you stayed in the City this weekend. Come out and celebrate summer and America's original art form. Hope this becomes a tradition.
