Arlington Jazz Festival 2019

Great crowds and performances at the 8th annual Arlington Jazz Festival in Arlington, MA.






“This festival is nothing short of amazing. I feel like I'm in New York City.”

So says Naomi Bailis commenting on the superb line of opening acts and headliners for the 2019 Arlington Jazz Festival (AJF). Put together by Dan Fox, musician and owner of the newly established AJF non-profit organization, the festival is in its 8th year and growing quickly.


District 5, a jazz quintet I'm a part of was excited to be a part of it. Peter Lesser, videographer and the drummer's son, grabbed some iPhone footage to capture it. Thanks Peter!
