I popped in and out of the Savannah Jazz Festival in Forsyth Park on Friday night. I missed the University of North Florida’s stellar ensemble, but I did catch most of the sets by the Robin Sherman Quartet, The Greg Lewis Trio, and Jeremy Davis & The Equinox Orchestra.
It was a beautiful night in the park, and tonight (Saturday) looks to be at least as nice — just cool enough to give a taste of fall, with clear skies above.
I was especially excited to see and hear Robin Sherman, a Savannah native who is finishing up school and studying bass at Florida State University. Robin said he might head to grad school somewhere next year but is weighing his options. The pianist for the ensemble was Brendan Polk, another Savannah Arts Academy graduate who is wrapping up his undergrad degree in Tallahassee.
