The EMIT Latin Jazz Fest on October 5, 6 & 7 was a great success and we look forward to the 2024 St. Petersburg Jazz Festival with wonderful artists and bands including Alexis Cole, Helios Jazz Orchestra, Mauricio Rodriguez and the MJR Latin Project, Markus Gottschlich Trio, Rafael Pereira, Jove Valentino Ruiz & O Som Do Jazz and Hot Club SRQ.

On another not, it was a great honor to be one of four Florida artists featured in "50 Stories in 50 Years", celebrating 50 years of service from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
