This weekend the CSU Bakersfield Amphitheatre will be filled with the sounds of some of the top jazz groups in the world for the 28th annual Bakersfield Jazz Festival. Top local talent like Mento Buru and the Kern County Honor Jazz Band will share the stage with headliners like Latin jazz legend Poncho Sanchez, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis and smooth jazz superstar Gerald Albright. Festival founder Doug Davis joined us on Valley Edition to talk about this year’s lineup.
