The 7thÂ annual Highline Classic Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 3-11 p.m., and will include a wide variety of jazz styles, dancing, dining, and vintage jazz films. The new â€œjazz walkâ€ format offers more music and more dining options, all at a very family-friendly price of only $20. (Cash only, please, at the door of any of the six venues on festival day,Â Sept. 19. Jazz fans under 18 are free!) Dancers will enjoy the beautiful wood floor atÂ St. Elizabethâ€™s ChurchÂ Parish Hall (1005 SW 152ndÂ Street) as they swing to Dixieland, Swing, Hot Jazz and Zydeco bands. Just up the street atÂ The Tin TheaterÂ (923 SW 152ndÂ Street) filmmaker and jazz historian Joe Vinikow will present two different screenings of â€œpristinely preservedâ€œ jazz films on original 16mm with commentary. The covered courtyard betweenÂ 909 and 913Â (909 SW 152ndÂ Street) is the setting for World Jazz featuring Latin Jazz bands evoking the sounds of Brazil, Cuba and Puerto Rico, and other bands playing Gypsy Jazz honoring the legacy of Django Reinhardt. Meanwhile, across the street atÂ Burien Arts GalleryÂ (826 SW 152ndÂ Street) youâ€™re sure to get the Blues–Acoustic Blues, from the Delta to the Mean Streets, by some of the top pickers, singers & blues harp guys in the area. If you like your jazz standards with a little contemporary twist, stop intoÂ HomeTaskÂ (611 SW 152ndÂ Street), otherwise known as â€œCool Cityâ€, for elegant small groups in an intimate setting. A few doors west atÂ Frankieâ€™s B-Town BistroÂ (653 SW 152ndÂ Street) catch a mixed bag of Latin Jazz, Vibraphone greats, two Earshot Jazz Vocalist winners, plus New Orleans and Vegas Rat Pack stylings.Â Theyâ€™ve got it all! No need to follow that itinerary.Â The music starts atÂ 3:00 p.m.Â at the Gallery and ends atÂ 11:00 p.m.Â at Frankieâ€™s.Â Staggered starts and ample breaks between sets means you can enjoy a lot of bands, films, and dining in a lot of places.
