Coming straight from Bull City after a two-day live music binge is a must. If you haven’t already enjoyed that type of adventure, start planning for next year. The Art of Cool Festival made its debut this past weekend taking over Durham, North Carolina and inviting a city to enjoy the sounds of Jazz, Hip Hop, and R&B with a world-class lineup. A few artists on the bill were Maceo Parker, The Foreign Exchange, Amel Larrieux, Hubert Laws, Kneebody, KING, Thundercat and Cody ChestnuTT, just to name a few. Venues were filled across town and the streets were packed with music-lovers navigating their way through the performances. Be sure to support this tremendous effort to highlight Jazz and all of its influences by donating to the Art of Cool Project.

Keep Jazz Alive!
