MO Jazz Festival is at Columbia’s Rose Park with Huntertones, Branjae

Jazz covers a serious amount of ground. 

In typical times, the music and its practitioners take to the road, inhabiting clubs and concert halls near you. The genre itself also stretches itself out across borders, touching — and uniting — various musical territories. 

The MO Jazz Music Festival, which has become an annual one-day tradition, underlines this truth by gathering bands who survey the landscape of jazz — wide and intimate as it is — yet have experience on local, regional and national fronts. 

The fest, coming up Saturday at Rose Park, is a production of Jazz Forward Initiative, which seeks to “provide the citizens of mid-Missouri with the opportunity to see and hear excellent live performances of this original American art form in a safe, comfortable setting.”
