Jazz Fest Fills The Air With Music Downtown

DETROIT (WWJ) – Downtown Detroit is alive with the sounds of jazz for the Detroit International Jazz Festival.

Arlene Lecours of Sterling Heights comes every year. Sunday she saw Hot Club of Detroit, Airmen of Note, and Blues Insurgents with Johnny Bassett.

“It’s a wonderful festival, I think the expansion over the years has been a great thing to include more of the city … I think it’s done wonders for the city,” Lecours told WWJ’s Beth Fisher.

Lecours and her husband checked out the jazz on Campus Martius and Hart Plaza.

Faye Hill of Detroit says she’s enjoying the music, weather and comes to Jazz Fest every year, and this year was no different.

Jazz Fest, which is free, wraps up on Monday.
