S.J. Jazz Summer Fest reunites community with live music by Judith Hill, Common, Pete Escovedo and more

Sultry sounds and groovy tunes are making their way back to San Jose this weekend for the 31st annual three-day San Jose Jazz festival. That’s right, Summer Fest is back — and bigger than organizers originally envisioned. Despite pandemic closures and hiccups, the jazz festival will have a six-stage show with more than 45 different artists with a wide range of styles that include R&B, blues, Latin, swing and of course, all kinds of jazz.
