Jazz under the sun

Published September 1, 2007 / by Steve Berentson

Clarence Acox and Thomas Marriott of the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra are silouetted against a backdrop of Mt. Baker during a Saturday performance at the Anacortes Jazz Festival. The festival continues Sunday and Monday, tickets available at the gate. Also drawing visitors to the community is the corresponding “Jazz Walk,” evenings in miscellaneous downtown venues.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
