One of the best summer music festivals in the Bay Area made a triumphant return yesterday after a five or six year hiatus. KCSM's Jazz on the Hill on the CSM campus is an all-afternoon jazz and blues fest that is a live representation of one of the great things about living on the Peninsula--91.1 FM. I know they stream it around the world now, but it's nice knowing that it all emanates from up on Highway 92.
The campus is looking very sharp thanks to all the bond money we have voted for. The weather was spectacular. The wading pool right in front of the stage got some good use. And everyone enjoyed the likes of Le Hot Jazz, Taylor Eigsti's trio, Charlie Mussellwhite playing the "Mississippi saxophone" (i.e. the harmonica) and Pacific Mambo Orchestra. Put it on your calendar for next June!
