Devised by the crew of Strictly Jazz Entertainment, the 2nd annual Pianos in the Park JazzFest palliates families and friends with a relaxing evening of jazz and soul, filling Overton Park with the mellow tones of assorted ivory-ticklers, saxophone maestros, and groove engineers. This year’s festival features the esteemed Philadelphia trio Pieces of a Dream, whose blend of smooth jazz has charmed audiences since 1976. Adding to the evening’s jubilant spirit, Sal Crocker and the Sax on Sunday Quartet deliver straightforward jazz free of air guitars and electronic gongs. Former Bar-Kays keyboardist and platinum-selling gospel jazz artist Winston Stewart bears witness with an uplifting set of rhythm and praise, and Will Graves & Soul fills the air with old fashioned R & B. Food and beverage vendors are on hand for fueling finger snaps and belly dances, and a moon bounce allows jazz-savvy children to eschew gravity and intercept floating quarter notes. This event allows BYOB.
