This Saturday is the Dymally International Jazz & Arts Festival starring Poncho Sanchez, David Sanborn, The Original Wailers, Kirk Whalum featuring special guest Kevin Whalum, Avery Sunshine, and Keyon Harrold, the Fernando Pullum Junior Jazz Band, and more. It's an eclectic mix of jazz, reggae, and spoken word on two different stages, plus vendors and a world-class arts pavilion. All proceeds benefit the Mervyn M.

We spoke to saxophonist Kirk Whalum about the festival and caught up on his latest projects. For more info on the show and the Dymally Institute, visit HERE.
