Did you know that the Main Stage at East Lansing's Jazz Festival is named
The Al and Beth Cafagna
Founders' Stage
Why, you ask? Well, it's because JAMM's own darling Al founded the festival decades ago, on the campus of MSU, where he taught for years. We'll be interviewing him soon, along with his sweet Beth. Here they are last year smoochin' and swingin' before the Second Line Parade began.

If you see him at Summer Solstice Jazz Fest, please, mention if you see him holding the camera upside down. He'll be glad you did!
