For those of you that heeded my advice in my last post, and jumped on the chance to get Arena tickets, congratulations. For those that waited too long (they sold out just 2 days after my post went up), and got Grounds tickets, congratulations to you as well. You'll at least be there, and one can always find somebody that wants to sell a ticket to the arena shows.
Either way, the festival starts next weekend. I'll be there covering it for this blog (of course), my gallery, and for Cityflight.com. Those that watch this site, will get it first, as I attempt to provide daily updates. Photos will start to arrive at my gallery within a week after the festival. Who will I be covering, you ask? The partial list is: Christian McBride, Kurt Elling, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ledisi, Maceo Parker, Cassandra Wilson, Joshua Redman, Nancy Wilson, and lots more. Now, shouldn't you be going to montereyjazzfestival.com to see if you can still get tickets?
