The North Carolina Jazz Festival Has Been Held In Wilmington NC Since 1980. It Consists Of Traditional Jazz, Played By ~15 All Star Musicians. I (George) Consider This Jazz To Be The Sounds Of The Big Bands Which I Love, Danced To, And Grew Up With Over The Years.

Shirley And I Attended The Festival In 2006 When I Took My Camera Along For The First Time. We have Continued To Attend Every Year Since And I Continued To Document The Event. The photos I Took And Edited Are Now Stored In The Cloud Of Google+ As A Community (NC Jazz Festival) So That Anyone Can View Them At Any Time.

Each NC Jazz Festival Has Been Held In Four Sessions Including Thursday, Friday And Saturday Nights And A Saturday Brunch At The Hilton Riverside (Now The Ballast Hotel). Because Of This, after A Few Years I Created At Least Four Albums, One For Each Session. Thus When One Views The Albums In The Google+ Community Each Year Will Have The 4 Albums. Unfortunately The Albums Are Not Sorted In Any Particular Order.

One Significant Feature Of The NC Jazz Festival Is The Patron Musician Option. If You Sign Up As A Patron For The Event And Are A Musician, You Can Sit In With The All Stars During The Saturday Brunch (Which Has To Be A Dream Experience.) To Emphasize These Experiences I Often Created A Seperate Patron Session Album.
