Truly one of the great cultural treasures in the region, the Healdsburg Jazz Festival
continues this year with a stellar lineup for its second weekend. Just as the absurd firing of founder Jessica Felix and a proposed change in direction by the festival’s former board of directors last year couldn’t take hold—the community reacted with understandable ire, Felix was reinstated, the board resigned and jazz won—the festival persevered against last weekend’s rain by moving outdoor events inside. This weekend sees Charles Lloyd, Charlie Haden, Bobby Hutcherson, Geri Allen, George Cables, Denny Zeitlin and many others. The festival runs through June 12; its full schedule is found at www.healdsburgjazzfestival.org.style="margin: 0pt 10px 5px 0pt;"
