The 33rd Annual
Detroit Jazz Festival
August 31 to September 3, 2012
Photos by Len Katz
Check out this week’s Blues Beat page to read all about this year’s Detroit Jazz Festival by Bob Putignano. But for this week’s Photo Page, we have some good news and some bad news for you. The bad news is that Bob’s camera died on him during the festival and he couldn’t provide his usual stack of photos. The good news is that he spoke with the great folks at the Detroit Jazz Festival and they turned Bob onto photographer Len Katz, who is providing the photos for this week’s Photo Page.
The Detroit Jazz Festival is a major cultural institution, providing year-round concerts and educational programming that culminates in one of the world’s premier jazz festivals on Labor Day Weekend.
Now in its 33rd year, the festival takes place over several city blocks in downtown Detroit – from Hart Plaza to Campus Martius – with five stages and 100 acts over four days. It also offers educational activities for adults and children, fireworks, late-night jam sessions, rare opportunities to meet the artists, and much more. And it’s all FREE.
We would like to thank Len Katz for his fine work and the Detroit Jazz Festival for making this week’s Photo Page possible.
As always, our writers and photographers share their work with you for your enjoyment, if you wish to share or use their photographs for any other purpose, please contact the photographer or our offices.
