So many artists so little time! Each month I’ll continue to feature another photo from past and current coverage of the Newport Jazz Festival. This one is from Newport 2011.



Brr-r-r-r, February‘s cold will soon turn to warmth and sunshine. In New England, “wait a minute” is our usual time frame.





March 25, 2023 at The Lilypad


We're gearing up to return The Lilypad in Cambridge MA on Saturday March 25th. It’s the first in a series of performances planned at the Lilypad in 2023.


Showtime is 4:30PM. Tickets will be available online at www.joanwatsonjones.com/lilypad-tickets. It would be of great help that you purchase tickets Photo Gary Alpert

online as we may not have anyone at the door to sell tickets.

We’re very much looking forward to have saxophonist, Bobby Tynes join us on this show. Here’s a link to a video featuring Bobby when he played with us this past summer.
