Return to Love: Jazz on a Summer Afternoon

Music lovers brought chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets and listened to the sensational sounds of jazz on the lovely grounds of The Patterson Foundation in South Orange, NJ on July 10. With a warm and gentle breeze, the weather was the perfect accompaniment to the music of bassist John Lee and friends including pianist Cyrus Chestnut, Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Steve Harrington-tenor sax, Sharel Cassity-alto sax, and Tommy Campbell-drums. The Argus Trio featuring Ben Collins-Siegel, Sam Konin, and Mecadon McCune also performed along with vocalist Thomas Garrett. Sponsored by the Patterson Foundation, John Lee Productions, and Gregory Burrus Productions, the funds raised go to support access to arts and performances.
