Dear Jazz Fest, thank you so much for bringing St. Vincent to us this summer. We haven’t forgotten how fucking awesome and otherworldly that was, and we we probably never will. We also thank you for bringing the Robert Glasper Experiment, Bettye Lavette, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, for handling Yasiin Bey’s no-show like pros, for giving local acts like Kirsten Olivia, Reeny Smith, The Wayo, JR Smith, Roxy and the Underground Soul Sound—and many others—a well-deserved spotlight. Thanks for the free shows at lunchtime, and for kicking off the summer with greatness. Infinite jazz hands in your honour.
