For the fifth year in a row, you can groove to straight-ahead jazz with a laid-back vibe every Wednesday night throughout the summer. The Rose Garden at Orange County's Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa provides the perfect outdoor oceanside backdrop for this collection of top artists, who'll all be playing two one-hour sets, separated by a half-hour intermission. Among the performances this year are a Birthday Celebration for Barbara Morrision with the Houston Person Quartet, a Brazilian Blowout with Bill Cunliffe and Wycliffe Gordon's tribute to Louis Armstrong.
