Where on earth did this post go?  Just realized it disappeared off WordPress.  Have re-posted as some of the schedules and calendars are still relative for this week at Jazz Festival.  Hope we are all having fun and getting out to live music.

Michael has curated a syncopated selection of jazz performances featured in live-action movies and animated cartoons, from the beginning of the sound era through the 20th century, covering New Orleans jazz, swing, jump blues, bebop and the West Coast cool style.
