Early Parisian jazz was reminiscent of New Orleans traditions, and will be captured with outdoor performances, headline acts, strolling musicians, and performances with select artist arrangements of Sidney Bechet’s work. AAMP will also reintroduce a signature event, Jazz ‘til Sunrise, beginning 10:30p Saturday night and concluding 5a Sunday morning, on two stages with continuous jazz being played.
