Last week, the Post-Dispatch ran a story announcing that plans were underway for a new jazz festival in St. Louis named after and featuring saxophonist David Sanborn. The article, linked above, indicated that organizers would like to book musicians for the event who have some sort of connection to St. Louis.
Which, as we wait for more details or an official announcement, raises a question: Who would St. Louis jazz fans like to see perform at the proposed David Sanborn Jazz Festival? Just for fun, we've created a poll listing some well-known musicians with connections to this area, and you're invited to take part and make your opinions known. You can select up to three choices from the list provided, or add your own. Just select "other," then add a comment, either on the poll or on this post, and write in the name of your alternate choice.
While we can't guarantee that anyone connected with the event will take notice of the results, it could provide some interesting possibilities for discussion...
