Better Than Ever, and a Great “Price”: The 2006 Iowa City Jazz Festival PDF Print

After my 4th consecutive trek to the Iowa City Jazz Festival, I am convinced this would be on my annual event calendar even if this was not my hometown. Nostalgia might have prompted my first trip but the quality of the music and organization bring me back. Among free public festivals nationwide, the ICJF has deservedly earned its “top ten” reputation, and the recent 2006 edition was arguable the finest yet. Not only were we treated to reasonably good weather and such top talents as the Bad Plus, Geoffrey Keezer, Robin Eubanks and Mingus Dynasty, we also had the opportunity to hear a young vocalist who may well be the connection between the next generation and the likes of Ella and Sarah, Rachel Price. Add to these benefits the sounds of the best in local and student musicians on the side stages and the classiest “street food” in mid-America, and the sum total is one hot weekend.

I fell in love with Mose Allison's sound when I first heard it in the 1970's. Mose has vocal phrasing drenched in the blues combined with impeccable jazz chops on the piano. That was over 30 years ago and he has continued to write and perform his own songs and put his stylistic stamp on classics like "Seventh Son" by Willie Dixon. He is simultaneously a down home Mississippi Bluesman and a urbane jazz hipster. In his half a century in the profession he has recorded albums for Prestige, Columbia, Atlantic, and Bluenote records. A tireless perform who still still tours throughout the year, he will grace Saint Paul Minnesota with a free concert at Mears Park on Friday the 16th. That show will be followed by two shows at the Artists' Quarter that evening and two more on Saturday the 17th, providing the perfect way to relax and cool-off after the outdoor music ends.

One of the best kept secrets in Midwest jazz is the annual Twin Cities Hot Summer Jazz Festival. Without the promotion of JVC, Festival Promotions or a major jazz magazine, the HSJF nevertheless has risen in stature and scope over its eight years, and offers residents and visitors access to top national and area artists at mostly outdoor venues across the metro area—and it’s all free. In addition, the top area jazz clubs, including the Dakota and Artists Quarter, have scheduled special shows in conjunction with the festival. This year’s official festival activities run June 16-25, starting with a St. Paul weekend in Mears Park and ending on Peavy Plaza in downtown Minneapolis. Headliners this year include four veteran performers who have attracted a loyal following in the Twin Cities—saxophone legends Dewey Redman and Frank Morgan, bluesy pianist/ singer/songwriter Mose Allison, and the belle of west coast vocalists, Barbara Morrison. HSJF also welcomes back its “home away from home team” of pianist Jon Weber and tenor sax artist Jerry Weldon, who will play together and in supporting roles throughout the festival.

From its first year as a one-day event in 1999, the Hot Summer Jazz Festival now draws over 75,000 with six days of multi-stage acts spread over a ten-day period. Two pre-festival events will be held on suburban stages (this year in Eden Prairie on June 11th, and in Wayzata on June 14th). Other special festival events include the annual Visual Jazz art show at Kingman Studios in northeast Minneapolis throughout the festival, and the “Jazz Night Out” club crawl in downtown Minneapolis on the evening of June 22nd. In addition to new and seasoned musicians, student and youth groups will be showcased on festival stages in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Festival highlights follow; see for a full schedule and updates.
