I wasn’t kidding when I joked from the stage that the partly cloudy day with temperatures in the mid-60′s was the nicest day we’d seen in quite a while. As this has been one of the wettest Marches on record in Seattle (and that’s saying something), we couldn’t wait to head south for a few days to the Oceanside Jazz Festival at Mira Costa College. In all of our groove For Thought travels, we haven’t made it to Southern California nearly as often as we’d like. We were greeted by some of the most welcoming hosts we’ve ever had, the Frequency Vocal Jazz Ensemble led by Matt Falker, and we got to spend some time experiencing the local collegiate and high school vocal jazz scene. We had a blast hearing some great groups over two days (shout out to Glynis Davies and the Jazz and Tonic group from CSU Long Beach – wow!), and we loved sharing the stage with Frequency to close our show. And what a great crowd! Thanks to everyone for helping to make it a fantastic weekend! Hope to see y’all again soon.
