Following the very first Jazz on the Plazz in June of 2003, the late Kenny Rankin described the evening in four words, “great venue, great crowd.”
Admittedly not the most eloquent summation you’ll ever hear, but pretty spot on.
Ten years is long time for this kind of event.
It has never been easy but has always been good thanks in large part to those
businesses which have filled the booths and to the patrons who have filled the
seats, we have survived.
To paraphrase Ira Gershwin, it appears that Los Gatos’ love of jazz is here to stay.
However, the fight goes on. For Jazz on the Plazz to remain one of the nation’s highest profile free music series, we can’t rest on where we’ve been.
As is true every year, our hands are still out in hopes that your hearts and your wallets are still open.
Together, we’ve made it this far.
Of course with a “great venue” and a “great crowd,” who would expect anything different?
Jazz tonight … jazz tomorrow.
