Dan Barrett, Michael Francis, Erik Unsworth and Ricky Malichi (not pictured) also played at Roswell High School and Mountain View Middle School on Thursday, and will be playing at the Roswell Museum and Art Center on Saturday. A full schedule for the Roswell Jazz Festival can be found in last Sunday’s Vision section of the Daily Record.
Below: Dan Barrett plays his trombone for Sierra Middle School students as part of the 13th annual Roswell Jazz Festival’s School of Jazz outreach on Thursday morning. When Barrett said he started playing trombone at age 11, many of the middle school students clapped and yelled that they were 11. Barrett encouraged students to think about their favorite musicians and explained that jazz was just as important to him and the other musicians as the students’ current favorite music is to them.
